PARKVIEW Special School pupils are enjoying a new playtime routine, thanks to the installation of a new musical playground.

The playground, which has numerous benefits for the children through the stimulation of the music, was brought about when the school were presented a cheque for 4,793 from HSBC. Each year the HSBC fundraising team choose projects across the UK to donate funds to and this year Parkview was chosen.

HSBC staff are encouraged to participate and become involved in local projects which can benefit the community especially educational or environmental projects.

The musical playground for Parkview was selected because of the potential benefits to the children who attend the school.

Jane Cowley, and Angell Jairath, two managers of HSBC, visited Parkview last week to see the new musical playground in action. Both said they were proud to work for a company that actively encourages its staff to put something back into the local community and felt privileged to witness the children playing and enjoying their new playground.
