Group First Supports Local Schools & Charities

Group First shows its support towards local schools and charities, starting with St Mary’s Hall Stonyhurst.

Children at Stonyhurst’s prep school, St Mary’s Hall, have a special reason to look forward to this year’s cricket season. A generous donation from a local business is to fund a new electronic cricket scoreboard for the Ribble Valley school. It will also enable the purchase of portable football goals and gardening equipment so that pupils can grow their own vegetables.

Group First, the Padiham-based property, storage and parking company, is planning a year of charitable endeavours in support of local schools and charities following this donation.

The Headmaster of St Mary’s Hall, Larry Crouch, said:  “We’re enormously grateful for this kind donation which will fund some excellent resources for the children. Getting them outside enjoying some fresh air, increasing activity levels and challenging them to try new things is a fantastic boost to the children’s wellbeing and development.”
