Manorcroft Nursery in Egham has received a grant for gardening equipment for its pupils from building material solutions company CEMEX UK. The grant comes from the CEMEX UK Foundation, which has been created to provide a single point of focus for all the company's charitable, community support and employee engagement activities.
Manorcroft Nursery, which is approximately 2 miles from CEMEX UK's Thorpe head office, caters for nursery-aged children and is unique in the area, as it is owned by the parents of the children who attend the nursery.
The Foundation has provided the nursery with large planters and other gardening equipment to promote nature conservation and introduce the youngsters to the enjoyment of gardening and seeing how plants and flower grow and change with the seasons.
The CEMEX UK Foundation is a key element of the company's sustainability programme, ensuring that the company's business does not compromise the ability of future generations to meet its needs.
The activities of the CEMEX UK Foundation embraces a number of key areas, including charity of the year, Butterfly Conservation, and a major collaboration with Groundwork UK, one of the country's leading community charities.
