Allison Homes Central donates £2,500 worth of bricks to Stamford school’s peace garden

Our Central team have donated four pallets of bricks, worth £2,500, to Stamford College, to help them build a peace garden at St George’s Church of England Primary School, in memory of former school pupil Milan Radocz and his mother Vivien.

The newly built garden has been designed to offer pupils and staff members a safe and calming space for them to spend time in when dealing with loss and grief, as well as somewhere to remember Milan, who tragically passed away last September in a car accident.

Bricklaying and Construction students from Stamford College helped to build the garden free of charge, and used the donated bricks from Allison Homes Central to build four raised flower beds.

When the new school term commences in September, pupils of the school will take charge of maintaining the garden and helping the flowers grow.

Naomi Tickle, Apprenticeship Development Manager at Allison Homes, was involved with the project and said: “At Allison Homes, we aim to support the local community wherever we can, and knew the peace garden was a project we had to aid with.

“We work very closely with Stamford College as many of our apprentices study there, and believe it is really special that the students have been involved with such an important build. This experience is one both us and the students will be able to look back on in years to come with pride, and we hope that the pupils and staff at St George’s Primary School find this garden to be extremely beneficial.”

Tom Deignan, Lecturer at Stamford College who led the build, said: “In offering their hand in this project, Stamford College students have been able to refine their practical skills in a real-life setting, but they can also take pride in the fact that they’re contributing to a poignant memorial that will benefit local people. They should be very proud of themselves.”
