Barratt Homes dishes out £500 for school’s pots and pans
Leading homebuilder Barratt Homes West Midlands has chipped in towards kitchen equipment for a Banbury special school’s new post-16 department building.
Frank Wise School received £500 from the developer, which has been spent on pots, pans, utensils, mixers and other domestic essentials, which post-16 students will use to prepare meals and develop their independent living skills.
The equipment will be available to use in the school’s new, two storey post-16 department building, the Griffiths Centre, which officially opens later in the summer and will cater for up to 24 students.
Simon Knight, Deputy Head Teacher at Frank Wise School, said, “We’re very grateful to Barratt Homes for their generous donation towards our new kitchen facilities. The Griffiths Centre will be instrumental in helping our students gain vital skills, including preparing meals as independently as possible.”
Adrian Farr, managing director at Barratt Homes West Midlands, said: “We wanted to contribute to the new Griffiths Centre at Frank Wise School in some way, so when we heard they needed equipment for their new kitchen, so that their students could learn some cooking skills, we thought we’d pitch in.”
Barratt Homes West Midlands currently has quality new homes for sale at the nearby development of Longford Park on Weeping Cross in Banbury.
