Barclays' volunteers give playground a lick of paint
4:40pm Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
VOLUNTEERS got out their paint brushes to brighten up a school’s playground.
Seven Barclays’ employees from Knutsford gave their time to add some colour to Tyldesley Primary School’s play area for Make a Difference Day.
The national day, run by the charity Community Service Volunteers (CSV), hopes to encourage people to consider how they can support their communities and make a difference by giving up a few hours of their time.
Activity organizer Mike Smith of Barclays said: “This is about giving back our skills, time and energy to support our local communities. After speaking with the school we agreed to go and brighten up the playground for the children, parents and visitors. We re-stained the pavilion that is used to store school equipment and re-painted fencing. The school is really pleased with the outcome.”
