COMMUNITY

Supporting Local Schools with the Olympia Charitable Trust

Olympia

In case you didn’t know, we have an Olympia Charitable Trust (registered charity no. 1091254). Always on the lookout for ways we can support the community, this year, over the February and Easter half terms, staff from Olympia and our generous contractors, Haslehurst and LPC, transformed the playground areas at St Mary’s Primary School. Saving the school around £10,000 in labour and material, the school now has a multi-sport space and newly painted play equipment to go in a freshly power-washed play area, as well as new planters, benches, a shed and outside sockets. 18 people volunteered 196 hours, and the headteacher said, “the impact of your efforts extends far beyond the physical improvements: you’ve inspired students with your dedication to community service.” If you know a school or fundraising project that needs support, please see our application form here.
