Ingevity donates £2,800.00 to Barrow Hall Primary School to support renewable energy education initiative
WARRINGTON, UNITED KINGDOM, October 31, 2022 – Ingevity announced a donation of approximately £2,800.00 to Barrow Hall Primary School in Great Sankey, Warrington, United Kingdom (U.K.), to support the school’s Eco-School initiative that demonstrates how renewable sources of electricity such as solar and wind power are produced and impact everyday life. The donation was made through the company’s IngeviCares philanthropy program.
Barrow Hall Primary’s Eco-School initiative was launched early 2022 and included installation of two outdoor canopies for the pupils to use for shelter and shade, as well as to use as an outdoor teaching area. Ingevity’s donation provides funds for a renewable energy pack to power the outdoor canopies.
“Ingevity’s mission is to purify, protect and enhance the world around us, and we are excited to support a program that teaches about renewable energy and its ability to positively impact our environment,” said Louise Clifton, human resources assistant at Ingevity’s Warrington facility and member of the IngeviCares Committee. “It was great to visit the school and meet the two pupils, Nova Byrne and Elizabeth Usher, who put forward the idea to the school governors.”
“The shelters that Ingevity’s gift will support provide important learning and social space for our pupils. Our curriculum teaches the increasing role of wind and solar energy in our world, and introducing Eco Packs at school reinforces those lessons, builds awareness of using renewable energy and gives our pupils a closer look at how sustainable energy sources can impact everyday life,” said John Littler, Headteacher.
