The team working on the Ocean Estate regeneration scheme in Tower Hamlets has raised £2,500 for Halley Primary School.
The money was used by the school to take Year 6 pupils on a trip, where two thirds of the children learnt to ride a bike and participate in activities they have never experienced before. The fundraising has also meant the school will be able to renew their broken sandpit.
The donation was bought together by staff from the companies working on the East Thames scheme including Higgins, East Electrical, Seabro Scaffolding, Regents Brickwork and Screedforce.
Lisa Payne, from Halley Primary School comments, “Halley greatly appreciates the combined efforts of all the teams that helped fundraise for the school. The money raised allowed us to make amazing memories for our Year 6 leavers by subsidising a school journey and fun day out as well as contributing to essential playground refurbishment and maintenance.”
Ocean Estate is a £50 million scheme for East Thames and is the development of 225 private and affordable residential units within three residential blocks, varying in height from two to thirteen storeys, with basement parking and associated landscaping.
