Barratt London, the housebuilder responsible for the Eastman Village development on Harrow View, has donated 30 playhouses to Vaughan Primary School’s Reception pupils, the majority of whom are currently learning from home.
The children were able to collect their cardboard playhouses from school and take them home to colour-in and decorate.
The donation aims to provide a fun activity to help keep children entertained while at home and give parents and carers a well-earned rest. The playhouses can be easily assembled by an adult, ready for the children to grab their colouring pens, get creative and design their own mini home.
Ed McCoy, Sales and Marketing Director at Barratt West London, said: “Home schooling and online live lessons have gone hand in hand in this latest lockdown. We wanted to give students and parents a break from screen time with the opportunity to get some creative juices flowing.
“As well as a bit of fun for families, where children can enjoy playing mini housebuilders for the day, we also saw this as an opportunity for kids to really express what their home has meant to them over lockdown.
This is not the first time Barratt London has partnered with Vaughan Primary School. The housebuilder has previously provided a donation of Christmas tree saplings which pupils were able to take home and plant in their gardens.
Kirsten Beaven, Business Leader at Vaughan Primary School, comments: “Our pupils were very excited to get started with decorating their playhouses, and I imagine their parents even more so. I’d like to thank Barratt London for their continued support of our students as we continue navigating through these difficult times.”
The housebuilder is encouraging families to share photographs of the pupils with their finished playhouse on Instagram using the hashtag #MiniBarrattLondon.
