A Paisley primary school has received a £10k donation from a local housing developer towards the replacement of its unused outdoor play apparatus.   

Thanks to the funding from Sanctuary Scotland, Bushes Primary School in Glenburn is one big step closer to a new play area for its pupils to enjoy at breaktime.

The school is close to Sanctuary Scotland’s Gleniffer Reach development at Skye Crescent, where 131 homes are being built by contactors Cruden Building.

The funding comes from Sanctuary’s MORE! initiative, which supports community projects that benefit local people in areas where it is developing new homes.

Headteacher, Craig McCrorie, said: “We are extremely grateful to Sanctuary for their donation towards the refurbishment of our climbing frame play area.

“This donation will enable the Parent Council to work with our wider Parent Forum to refurbish this play area and make it accessible for all of our children. This refurbishment will have a positive impact on the lives of the children within Bushes for years to come.”

Gillian Lavety, Sanctuary’s development director – Scotland, added: “We hope that our donation will enable the school to press on with the plans to transform the play area into an exciting and safe environment.

“We look forward to seeing the completed transformation and hope that it will provide years of fun for local schoolchildren.”
