Longstanton United Kingdom – John Henry Group and it’s concrete partner Cardinalis Concrete have been helping youngsters at a Cambridge based primary school to build for the future after donating to a school Lego club.
John Henry Group was approached for £250 sponsorship of the club by Hatton Park Primary School, which is based a few miles away from the company’s Cambridge head office in Longstanton.
The school’s Lego Club has been running for several years at the 220 pupil school with about 60 children regularly using the facility to learn, play and socialise at lunchtimes, for all ages between four and 11.
Hatton Park Headteacher Mr Anthony Aguda, said: “Lego club has really taken off.
“We have boys and girls of all ages who enjoy taking part.
“It helps build a real sense of teamwork and collaborative play; the conversations they have about their creations are wonderful!
Mr Aguda said the facility also allowed the community to get involved with the school, as many parents have signed up to help run the club.
“As we swell the variety of Lego sets, we aim to encourage a greater variety of attendees!”, he said.
John Henry Group’s Group Marketing and Corporate Communications Manager, Rob Andrews, said: “We were delighted to be able to support this fantastic initiative and we are also a company with interests in design, construction and engineering.
“Lego is a great interactive toy but also it encourages imagination and learning for children, so it’s also a great learning tool as well and it’s clear that at Hatton Park School, the children have been able to use their imaginations to full effect.”
