A leading north Derbyshire house builder has leapt to the aid of a local primary school with a sizeable donation of funds and materials which will go towards the school’s new sports facilities.

Woodall Homes, which has its head office in Barlborough and sales suite in Bolsover, has donated £500 to Barlborough Hall School to support the school’s installation of a new long jump and high jump pit.

In addition, the business has also supplied materials for the new facility, which is set to give children a ‘great experience’ as the school looks to develop PE skills of pupils across all year groups.

The sizeable donation from Woodall Homes adds to a near four-figure sum raised by a family quiz night, held at the school, for parents and children earlier this year.

Richard Stevenson, head of sport at Barlborough Hall School, said: “I’ve always wanted to have a high jump and long jump facility at the school for children to enhance their skills.

“We thank Woodall Homes for their support.

“Having a local business support our pupils was very much appreciated, particularly by the teachers and children who will be using this new facility.

“The funds raised at the quiz night were an amazing effort by all members of our community.

“And in addition, I would like to thank David Wood (Woodall Homes managing director) and his team for this kind donation.”

David Wood added: “We were extremely happy to support Barlborough Hall School with a donation towards an important new facility.

“The school’s new long jump and high jump pit will no doubt contribute hugely to the enhancement of pupils’ physical education skills, something which is vitally important to a child’s overall development.

“We look forward to the new facility being installed and used in the coming months.”
