Bakkafrost funds primary school facilities

A local primary school is the latest beneficiary of community grant funding from salmon farmer Bakkafrost Scotland.

Kirn Primary School, in Argyll and Bute, on the west coast of Scotland, received a donation towards outdoor facilities through Bakkafrost’s latest round of Community Fund awards.

Thanks to the donation, Kirn Primary School has been able to purchase four wooden picnic benches. The benches have been installed in the school garden, which is a focal point within the local community.

Throughout the year children play in the garden, and older people work there, planting and harvesting vegetables, while also passing on valuable skills to the next generation.

The Community Fund offers employees the chance to nominate local business, charities and groups that have a positive impact on health, wellbeing in the local community for a grant of up to £250.

The funding was awarded to Kirn Primary School following a nomination by Stuart Drummond, assistant harvest manager at Bakkafrost Scotland Kirsteen MacDonald, head teacher at Kirn Primary School.

Kirsteen MacDonald, head teacher at Kirn Primary School said: “We are very grateful to Bakkafrost Scotland for the new picnic benches in our playground. The children are really enjoying having somewhere to have their snack and sit with their friends. Having these benches makes our playground more inviting and enjoyable. Thank you to Bakkafrost for this kind donation”.

Stuart Drummond said: “It gives me a great sense of pride knowing that I work for a company that invests in the local community. Thank you Bakkafrost Scotland for your support in donating four picnic benches to Kirn Primary School. It’s greatly appreciated”.
