Children at Thames Pre-school will have a refurbished space to read and relax – thanks to funding from waste management company CSG.
Thames Pre-School, on Bath Road in Cricklade, has been awarded £500 through CSG’s new Community Chest initiative.
The business says its Community Chest initiative was launched to support good causes across the country.
The pre-school says it plans to use the cash for two new child-sized sofas for the quiet time area, where children can relax and read books.
Sara Shoesmith from Thames Pre-School said: "We are absolutely thrilled to receive this generous donation from CSG. Funding is particularly hard to come by at the moment so this is a massive boost.
“Our current sofas are old and falling apart. The children will love enjoying time in the new area with some good books.
“We are very aware of CSG as a significant local employer. It’s tremendous that they are actively getting involved with the local community.”
CSG is a major waste specialist, helping householders and organisations nationwide by offering a complete variety of services including septic tank emptying and treatment, as well as recovery and disposal of specialist waste such as chemicals and oil.
Its Swindon base on Bath Road, specialises in emptying septic tanks, cesspits and sewage treatment plants for householders and businesses across the region.
CSG driver Nicholas Brown nominated Thames Pre-School for the Community Chest funding.
He said: “I’m so pleased that Thames Pre-School was successful in obtaining this support from CSG. It’s an excellent Pre-School which really goes above and beyond for the children in its care.
“I’m proud to work for a company which is committed to supporting groups and charities in the areas in which it operates.”
