Sainsbury’s and its on-site construction team in Blackpool have joined forced to improve facilities at a children’s charity.

Workers from Barr Construction, the contractors building the new store on Talbot Road, refurbished a number of rooms at Aiming Higher, a charity which offers play facilities to disabled children from its base on Church Street.

Nick Alston, Sainsbury’s Project Manager, said: “Supporting Aiming Higher has been a fantastic experience and we’re glad that we could lend a helping hand to such an important and worthy local organisation.

“The team from Barr have done a fantastic job and the improvements they’ve made to the play centre will ensure that the centre offers the very best learning environment for the children.”

The team’s work included refurbishing a respite room, laying a new floor in the play area and donating equipment to the centre, including brand new computer, desks and chairs and a television.

Aiming Higher manager Katy Simister said: “We can’t thank Sainsbury’s and Barr enough for the fantastic work that has been done at our centre.

“It’s greatly appreciated by all the staff, families and children and will ensure the children have a safe and comfortable place to play.”
