Redrow South Midlands, currently building at Bloxham Vale, on Bloxham Road, has presented the Friends of Frank Wise School with a £1,300 donation.

The funds will help the Friends of Frank Wise School, which supports children with special educational needs, to purchase a fitness station as part of their plan to make the outdoor spaces more accessible and promote physical activity.

The pieces of equipment were specially selected to enable up to 10 children to exercise their main muscle groups, making them suitable for PE lessons, but also break times.

Anita Bal, the office coordinator at Friends of Frank Wise School, said: “Frank Wise School is the only school for children with special educational needs in the area, so we’re always keen to ensure pupils receive the best possible education – and this includes physical activity.

"Making the outdoor spaces accessible is one of our key long-term objectives, so we were delighted to receive a funding boost to help us purchase key fitness equipment. On behalf of everyone at the school, I’d like to say a big thank you to the Redrow South Midlands team for their support.”

Suzanne Irons, sales director for Redrow South Midlands, said: “As part of our commitment to create thriving communities, we were delighted to be able to support the Friends of Frank Wise School’s initiative, which will make outdoor spaces more accessible for children, while giving them the possibility to develop their fitness skills.

“In light of the recent government guidelines, creating healthy habits from a young age and giving children the opportunity to develop their fitness skills is key. We’re proud to play a part in the Frank Wise School pupils’ futures by encouraging them to get active.”
