Binley Woods Primary School fayre given a boost with generous donation from Lioncourt Homes

A primary school in Binley Woods, Coventry, has received a £1000 donation from Worcestershire based housebuilder Lioncourt Homes to sponsor their inflatable playground at their summer fayre.

The fayre was well-attended by the local community with various activities and stalls, including a range of inflatable activities for the children to enjoy, alpacas and tug of war. An impressive sum of money was raised at the event, which will allow the school to improve their ICT facilities. Purchasing equipment such as iPads for the children provides the opportunity for a more customised experience in the classroom – which can be beneficial for those with different learning styles.

Amelia Rabin-Williams, Chairperson for Binley Woods Primary School PTA, commented:

“Due to issues with Covid-19 in recent years, I am thrilled that we were able to hold the summer fayre this year. It was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by the local community.

The large sum of money raised from this event and our sponsors will make a massive difference to the day-to-day learning of our children here. Due to relying on limited funding and the PTA’s support, our ICT facilities are somewhat basic at present. We currently have thirty iPads which are shared across the entire school – we now hope to purchase another thirty.

We are extremely grateful for the generous donation from Lioncourt Homes, which moves us significantly closer to achieving our goal for the school.”

Colin Cole, Chief Executive of Lioncourt Homes, said:

“I am delighted that we have had the opportunity to donate this sum of money in aid of the Binley Woods primary school’s summer fayre. We hope our contribution will positively impact the children’s growth and learning – which is a worthy cause we are pleased to support.

As a company, a key commitment of ours is to continue our engagement with local communities across all of our developments. Where possible, we look to maximise the benefit to local people in areas we are building and leave a legacy behind.”
