Rutland primary school receives gardening vouchers from Allison Homes
Schoolchildren received a donation of vouchers and seeds to celebrate National Children's Gardening Week.
Housebuilder Allison Homes presented £100 to pupils at Langham Primary School.
The children will plant a selection of forget-me-nots, mixed summer flowers and other blooms to attract butterflies and bees.
Headteacher Diane Rowland said: “The children can’t wait to start planting the seeds that they’ve received, and we’re looking forward to purchasing new equipment and resources to encourage our pupils to get involved with gardening.
“It’s important to us that our pupils receive a balanced and well-rounded education. This is one more way that our pupils can learn something new and have fun at the same time.”
Spokesman for Allison Homes, Samantha Hart, said: “It was important to us to get involved with National Children’s Gardening Week, and do something to help pupils in the local community have a bit of fun, and maybe spark a passion for gardening.”
The company also donated vouchers to Corby Glen Primary School, William Hildyard Primary School in Market Deeping and Stamford Junior School.
