SPONSOR FOR COMMUNITY OPEN DAY

August 26th, 2015

Niblock was delighted to sponsor United St. Saviour’s Charity Community Open Day on Wednesday 22nd July 2015 at Tanner Street, London. The Charity outlined its vision regarding the local community and explained its new strategic direction and associated community projects. As part of this, St. Saviour’s Charity aims to develop more almshouses, which will have a profound impact for individuals in the heart of Bermondsey.

Part of the Open Day also involved the presentation of some of the community groups that St. Saviour’s Charity supports in North Southwark, such as Cooltan Arts, Rotherhithe Shed, Salmon Centre and Surrey Docks Farm. A variety of activities were also provided for the local children, including Bermondsey Treasure Hunt and facepainters. The event was a great success and enjoyed by many.

FUNDRAISING FOR PRIORY SCHOOL

August 12th, 2015

The Priory is a maintained Community Special School for students between the ages of 11 and 19, who have severe learning difficulties and disabilities, as well as students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

We have pledged to assist in the development of the Priory’s outdoor area in order to provide the students with a more relaxing and calming environment, in which they can expel excess energy and frustration. A sensory garden will provide the students with an appropriate outlet to release this energy. Connecting with nature improves children’s cognitive functioning, physical confidence and the development of their motor and social skills.The works to the outdoor area will be designed with the students’ individual needs in mind, and will be accessible to all, including those with physical disabilities.
In order to raise money for the sensory garden, 4 volunteers from Niblock and Niblock Electrical are taking part in Tough Mudder, a team-oriented 18-20 km obstacle course. Tough Mudder is a gruelling challenge designed by the Special Forces to test physical strength, stamina and mental grit.

Event Details:
– Saturday 26th September 2015
– Winchester, Hampshire
– 10-12 mile obstacle course

Any contributions you are able to make will positively assist in the learning and development of the pupils at Priory. Please make donations payable to: Niblock Builders Limited Charitable Foundation and send to 135 Anerley Road, Anerley, London, SE20 8AJ.

Your support is very much appreciated.
