HS2 Area North Team Wins Latest 100 Years of Giving Award

The 100 Years of Giving award recognises the fantastic efforts being made across the business to give back to the community through the time and investment that is devoted to charity, fundraising and supporting local communities.

The Balfour Beatty VINCI HS2 Area North team are the winners of the latest award. Members of the team recently carried out a community investment project to improve areas of Balsall Common Primary School.

The work was undertaken to improve the sensory garden area and play area of the school, both of which had been closed to children before this project.

It took two weeks in total for the team to transform both areas with work including the clearance of all old equipment, vegetation cutting, forming new flower beds for the sensory garden, painting all woodwork and laying 40 cubic metres of specialist play area bark.

The team were helped by local subcontractors Acorn Environmental Management, Flannery's and Traffix to successfully complete the work and provide two fantastic areas for the children to enjoy.

They received a gift voucher and a 500 charity donation as their prize, which they have chosen to donate to the school to help with their fundraising for play equipment. Well done to everyone involved!
