Dowlais Primary School accommodates 142 pupils, aged 6-11.
The primary also held a sponsored Danceathon, raising a further £2,000. After more fundraising, Dowlais was contacted by Merthyr Valleys Homes, which was also keen to help – and after a meeting, donated £5,000. The target had been reached!
Julie was called straight away and the Captain Mannering tower was ordered. The good news continued when the school was contacted again a few weeks later by The Trecatti Trust, pledging a further £5,000. Another phone call was made to Julie, as this funded the low level equipment for a Trim Trail.
”As the workmen cordoned off the work area, the children were still able to use the playground and see what was being installed at different times. Needless to say, the children asked LOTS of questions and the men from Sovereign were very friendly, helpful and interacted with the children. The benefits from having both pieces of play equipment on the yard have been huge!
There are hardly any issues at break times anymore, the children are active and happy! We are delighted with our playground so far and would definitely order with Sovereign again. We have had an overall incredible journey with the company.Lynsey JonesChairperson Dowlais Primary PTA
