Higos Supports Roundabout Pre-SchoolThursday 29th August 2013
Higos Insurance Services is delighted to support the Roundabout Pre-School, which is the only Pre-School in Somerton, Somerset.
Roundabout caters for around 50 children from the Somerton area for children ranging from 2½ years to 4 years and 11 months. Ian Gosden, Managing Director of Higos Insurance Services Ltd, recently presented a cheque for £500 to Jenny Maynard, the Project Leader of Roundabout Pre-School.
Jenny Maynard explained how the donation will be used. “The Pre-School’s current premises are 50 years old and a structural survey in 2007 gave the hut a further 3-5 year lifespan. The total cost of a new building will be approximately £200,000 and this new building will be a vast improvement upon the current premises, offering much better disabled access, separate kitchen and toilet areas and an office with increased storage. So far we have raised £150,000 but we still need help to reach our target and are very grateful to the staff at Higos Insurance Services for their generous donation, which will eventually enable us to offer additional child care places to families in the local community.
Ian Gosden explained “We are pleased to be able to help Roundabout Pre-School with their fundraising towards their new premises. Our donation was generated by our staff Charity Committee, which is responsible for allocating donations to organisations within the communities in and around our network of branches. Everyone at Roundabout Pre-School has our best wishes with their fundraising efforts.”
