Morgan Sindall have donated 1,500 chairs to the charity, Furniture for Education Worldwide (FEW), who have shipped the furniture to schools around the globe, including Gambia, Pakistan, Nepal, Uganda, Cambodia and Kenya.
The chairs have been donated from Deanery High School, in Wigan, and South Shore Academy, in Blackpool. Both schools were part of the Priority Schools Building Programmes (PSBP) North West batch, which has involved the transformation of 8,144 school places for the Education Funding Agency (EFA).
Barry Roberts, area director at Morgan Sindall, said: “Furniture for Education Worldwide is a fantastic charity that helps to ensure that every child can enjoy going to school and learning in a classroom”.
“During our work on the Priority Schools programme, we were focused on delivering new state-of-the-art buildings that would make a real difference to the wellbeing and education of pupils. That’s why we are delighted to be able to donate these chairs, which will hopefully mean that even more children can benefit from the project.”
