Young pupils and staff at Kirkby Church of England Primary School in Kirkby are honing their cooking skills in a brand new kitchen, supplied as part of a community engagement drive by a local contractor and supplier.
Frank Rogers and Magnet Kitchens have completed the install to the new kitchen which sits within a classroom, allowing youngsters to cook and learn whilst encouraging healthy eating. The existing kitchen was particularly old and through heavy use had fallen into a state of disrepair.
Housing association, Your Housing Group, contacted both Frank Rogers and Magnet following requests from local community members to support them in sourcing a kitchen replacement. Both companies work regularly with Your Housing and agreed to supply resources and materials, including all units, at zero cost.
All works were carried out during half term and school resumed with a brand new sparkling kitchen.
Stephen Maddocks of Your Housing Group said: “we have worked with Frank Rogers for over 2 years now delivering excellent kitchen installations. Frank Rogers have illustrated time again their commitment to the local community to which we are truly grateful”
Dean Rogers, Managing Director of Frank Rogers added:
“We work closely with several housing associations across Merseyside, including Your Housing Group, and are always keen to give something back that will leave a lasting legacy as part of an ongoing project. To be able to provide a new kitchen learning area was particularly rewarding project, enabling young children to begin to develop important life skills from an early age and delivering the message of healthy eating.”
Lucy Turner of Magnet added:
“It’s brilliant to be able to give something back to our communities – the local Magnet branch, is heavily involved in the supply of kitchens and utilities to homes throughout Liverpool and Wirral, often through housing associations and as such our work is often community focused. We’re pleased to be able to support Kirkby Church of England School and leave a lasting legacy that the youngster will benefit from for many years.”
