Nisa store donates to wildlife project

Published on 07 May 2014

Through Nisa’s charity Making A Difference Locally (MADL), the store gave £350 to Southwark Primary School for their “bog garden” wildlife project.

Kully and Sandy Sandhu run the Nisa Local. Kully said: “We decided to donate to the school because we have an ongoing commitment with Nisa’s charity Making A Difference Locally in order to support our community.

“The school is doing a superb job in getting the children to be proactive in order to participate in the eco garden. Last year we donated some gardening tools as every child had a lesson a week in the vegetable garden.”

The garden will not only encourage a natural environment but it will also be used for educational purposes during science lessons, where youngsters will be able to spot wildlife and plants.

Rosie Chadwick, nursery teacher at Southwark Primary School, said: “We are hoping to create a bog garden in our school grounds to encourage plants to grow and wildlife to flourish. At the moment we have an old pond which is not being used and is the perfect site for a bog garden.

“The children will be involved with the making of the bog garden, which will lead to many learning opportunities including writing letters to companies to ask for materials, maths opportunities and much more.

“Thank you so much for donating this money to Southwark, we are very grateful!”
