STAFF from Coventry Building Society’s head office took time out from their normal working days to help out with
some much-needed renovation at Northleigh House School.
Staff at the Hatton school – which provides a safe learning environment for secondary aged children who have
been affected by bullying – asked the building society if it could help to brighten up their common room.
And no sooner had they asked then a team from the society’s finance department picked up their tools and paint brushes and took up the challenge.
Team members Kamaldeep Doll said: “We wanted to help out at Northleigh House School as it stood out for the safe and caring learning environment it provides to vulnerable young people in our community.
“Hearing the experiences of some of the students made us all really eager to volunteer.
“We were asked to brighten up the common room to make it more welcoming for the students – after removing some old furniture, adding a few coats of paint and a giving it a good tidy, the room looked great.”
Viv Morgan, Head of Trustees at Northleigh House School, thanked the team.
She added: “They have made a superb job of the common room, it looks 100 per cent better.
“A big thank you to everyone from the Coventry who volunteered – our staff and students are all so pleased.”
