Preparing for spring

Preparing for spring

Children at a County Durham primary school are preparing for spring thanks to the latest donation from Durham Aged Mineworkers’ Homes Association.

To show its appreciation for singing at their end of year residents’ forum, DAMHA, recently gave £50 to Cestria Primary School in Chester-le-Street.

The school has now used this money to buy new planters, bulbs and a bird feeder, ready for spring.

It forms part of an ongoing partnership between the school and DAMHA.

DAMHA Chief Executive Paul Mullis said: “Cestria Primary School is very close to our head office and over the years we have built up an excellent relationship with the children singing at several of our residents’ events and also helping to design a logo to mark our 120th anniversary.

“Their latest performance in December was fantastic and as well as singing, the children had also gone to the trouble of making Christmas cards for our residents, which were gratefully received.

“We were only too happy to make another small donation to the school and we look forward to visiting in the spring to see the wonderful things they have planted.”

Cestria Year 2 Teacher Jayne Behenna said: “We have always been happy to support DAMHA and they have been very kind to us through their donations.

“The children always enjoy singing to the residents and they are already looking forward to returning this Christmas.

“In the meantime, we have put DAMHA’s donation to good use, with the planters, bulbs and bird feeder all now in place ready for the spring and summer.”
