St Richard's Primary pupils design their dream home to raise money for a CD new outdoor play space
We’ve partnered with St Richard’s Catholic Primary School in aid of its fundraising drive to create a new outdoor area for early years students to enjoy.
We donated £500 as a prize for winning a ‘design your dream home’ competition, specifically created for St Richard’s reception pupils. The entire year group submitted an entry, where the designs were judged by a specialist panel of our employees.
The three winners: Lottie, Lydia and Amelie, won the £500 donation for their fellow classmates and their submissions are being displayed in sales centre at New Fields, our nearby community of homes, for all visitors to see.
The sponsorship forms part of a wider fundraising programme to pay for the works, expected to commence over the summer holidays in readiness for the new intake of students this September.
James Field, Head Teacher at St Richards Primary commented: “The children really enjoyed the competition and showcased plenty of creativity in their designs. We are incredibly grateful to Redrow for their support. We are looking forward to using the funds raised to transform our youngest students’ outdoor space into a safe, creative and inclusive environment to enhance their well being and physical development. It will feature new climbing apparatus, nature areas and purpose-built play equipment.”
Cara Lazarevic, Area Sales Manager in the Southern Counties, commented: “With the intermittent school closures over the last 18 months, we couldn’t be happier to support a project that will provide a dedicated space for early years students to get outside, play and have fun. We created the design your dream home competition so the pupils could show off their creative flair and it was an absolute pleasure to judge the beautiful submissions, although very hard to choose only three winners! We hope the children enjoy the new space once its built.”
Located just over a mile from St Richard’s Catholic Primary is New Fields, our first community of homes in Chichester. Taken from our award-winning Heritage Collection, the homes at New Fields benefit from bright and modern interiors, paired with traditional Arts & Crafts exteriors, with gable ended roofs and pretty brick detailing. Currently available to buy are three- and four-bedroom homes, starting in price from £439,950.
We’re heavily investing in Chichester and West Sussex more broadly, with our second community of homes Lavant View only recently launching earlier this year. Likewise, we have live developments across Barnham and Yapton and last year submitted a joint planning application for the former Ford Airfield with Wates Developments, earmarked for 1,500 new homes and brand-new community facilities and infrastructure.
