Cameron Homes handed over the activity set to the Spark Centre in.

The kit is designed to encourage children to take part in creative play and to learn about mixing sand, counting bricks and helping out with others.

Spark director, Shevonne Hodson-Walker, said: “As a volunteer run, non-funded organisation we rely on support from local businesses from donations of resources to help with centre running costs.

“We are very grateful to Cameron Homes for donating this lovely construction set which will be enjoyed by the children using the centre.

“Outdoor play opportunities are so important for young children and we are so lucky to have a purpose built play area at Spark. The construction set will be a superb addition.”

Danielle Goffe-Wood, marketing manager of Cameron, said that the company always tried to support local community organisations where possible.

“Spark is a very worthwhile venture and we were happy to purchase the construction kit which is already proving popular with the little ones,” she said.

“As well as keeping them busy it may even encourage a few of them go into the building industry one day – we are always keen to nurture new careers!”
