Burntwood children given a boost


Youngsters at a children’s centre are being kept busy this summer with a new construction kit donated by a Chasetown firm.

Cameron Homes, which builds a range of housing developments in the region, has handed over the activity set to the Spark Centre in Mossbank Avenue, Burntwood.

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.

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.

“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!”

Spark supports families, carers and extended families with pre-school age children in Burntwood, providing an accessible, safe and stimulating venue with a range of activities.

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."

Cameron Homes is selling a range of two and three bedroom properties at its Chapel Court development in High Street, Chasetown.
