A delivery of limestone to Sandy Upper School has been made to help building development.

The generous donation has been made by Mick George Ltd, and will be used to complete foundation works.

Sue Sheppard, from the school, said: “Available funds for refurbishment projects are scarce and therefore the buildings are long overdue a facelift. We rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded businesses like Mick George Ltd, we wouldn’t be able to serve those in our community each year.”

Jon Stump, finance director of Mick George Ltd, said: “It is fantastic to see a school delivering such outstanding educational results, and striving to excel beyond in the future. We appreciate that school funding is limited, so we are keen to assist where feasible. As a business we work with a number of schools incorporating schemes such as Skips for Schools which helps to educate on everyday occurrences such as recycling.

“Similarly to our business, Sandy Upper School are investing resources heavily to develop skillsets, training and vast improvements to the school environment for both staff and pupils.

“Having recently relocated to our new head office premises we have experienced first hand the positive and uplifting effects that the new refreshing environment has had on motivation and business results overall.”
