Elsewhere, our current project in Peterborough has initiated a generous monthly food box donation to their local foodbank as well as providing “Warm Home Packs” to local families in need. Each pack contains hot water bottles, blankets and draught excluders.
A donation has been made to the Cherry Orchard Primary Academy, situated within the ongoing Ebbsfleet Garden City project. 5 new laptops have been donated to the school to support their underprivileged pupils with home learning. With schools closed due to the pandemic, students are reliant upon computers at home to engage in remote learning, with these laptops helping students who may not have access to their own computers.
Declan Cogley, Earthworks and Infrastructure Operations Director “Covid 19 continues to have a dramatic effect on the education sector and we are proud to be able to support the learning of pupils within the Ebbsfleet community.”
