Skipton school benefits from community initiative

Pupils from Greatwood Primary School in Skipton

Dale Eddison have partnered with Greatwood Primary School in Skipton and has funded the purchase of sports vests.

 

Jonelle Yeoman, Head Teacher of the school says, “We really appreciate the sponsorship that Dale Eddison has given to our school. It’s really important that we make our children feel good about themselves. Wearing the vests that Dale Eddison have kindly purchased for local events like the cross country and orienteering will not only improve their self-esteem but also encourage better performances.  The children are looking forward to wearing the sports vests at the orienteering event at the end of this month.”

Dale Eddison’s Branch Manager of the Skipton branch, Helen Carter, says “We are always looking for ways to support our local community. We’re committed to supporting schools in the local area and we’re thrilled to be able to deliver a little joy to the children of Greatwood Primary School.

“Further to this we have turned to the skills of the school children to hold a competition to design a ‘Welcome to your new home’ card for our branch to hand out to anyone that completes on a sales property. As well as seeing the winning design on the cover of our move-in cards for all our new tenants and buyers, the winner will also win an Apple IPad”.

“We have been at the very heart of Skipton for 5 years and there are many home-grown members of staff working in the business that will be familiar faces to many. As an independent Yorkshire based agency, we are proud of our strong roots and are delighted to have the opportunity of giving something back to the community whenever we can, which is why we have also relaunched our ‘Give Back Scheme’. For every person that is associated with Greatwood Primary School, who chooses to sell a property through us, we will donate £250 to the school upon completion of the sale of their property.”
