Redrow helps build best start for Little Stoke youngsters

Redrow event at Start Rite Pre-School, Little Stoke.

Housebuilder Redrow Homes has donated a set of new toys to a pre-school based at the The Stokes Youth Centre in Little Stoke Lane.

There were smiles all round as Redrow’s mascots, Buster and Buddy Bear called in at the centre recently. The visit was a great surprise for the young members of Start Rite Pre-School, as they were presented with brand new toys for the playgroup – fittingly themed around construction!

The children, who range in age from two to five years old, spent the morning playing the part of builders, with high-visibility jackets, hard hats and wheel barrows.

The toys were a donation from Redrow, who raised money for the community pre-school through a highly competitive darts tournament at their Bradley Stoke office. This event was part of Redrow’s 40th Year celebrations – the company has launched an Anniversary Charity Challenge with each area of the country aiming to raise as much money as possible for various good causes.

Andrew Addison, sales director for Redrow (South West), said:

“It was great to see the children’s faces light up when we brought Buster and Buddy into the room. They had a great morning playing with the new toys and we hope that they will provide fun for many years to come. All the children had such great imaginations, so there is no limit to what they can build!”
