CHILDREN CANNOT CONTAIN THEIR EXCITEMENT OVER DONATION
Tuesday, 05 September 2017
When Bishopton Primary School were on the look-out for a large container to store all their outdoor equipment, they knew just where to turn.
CALA Homes (West) responded to the school’s plea by completely refurbishing the container and arranging it to be delivered to the school.
CALA Homes which has sold all of its homes at nearby Dargavel Village development on Slateford Road, were happy to step up and donate a container used during the construction of the development.
The refurbished container will be used to store the school’s new outdoor play equipment by CALA, in conjunction with MCD Electrical, Forth Containers and Advance Construction Scotland.
Louise Hughes, treasurer of the PTA, said: “We are delighted with the container, the school was in desperate need of more storage and this has solved the problem.
“It comes just in time for the new school term, we cannot thank Iain and the team at CALA Homes enough. We hope the children will be able to decorate it and make it their own.”
Iain Shankland, site manager, said: “When Louise got in touch, we were more than happy to help the school out. The container has been refurbished so it is almost brand new.
“We are delighted to support Bishopton Primary and hope the container proves invaluable to the school.”
CALA Homes currently have a number of developments across the West of Scotland including CALA at Thorntonhall, Endrick Meadows at Balfron, Rosegarth Wynd at Newton Mearns, 21 Mansionhouse Road at Langside, Gilburn Steadings at Jackton, Dullatur Greens at Cumbernauld, Kinnaird Oaks at Larbert and CALA at Kilmardinny at Bearsden.
