Boughey Distribution has made a £300 contribution towards a mural painted at Calveley Primary Academy; a school located close to the company’s site in Wardle. The mural, located in the reception, welcomes staff, students and parents into the school and showcases its values.
The mural has been created by artist Rory McCann who specialises in painting large-scale educational school projects. He has created many murals ranging from storybook characters to outer space designs.
The artwork created at the school is a mural the artist said was ‘all about growth, development, and our journeys’. The mural incorporates the school’s values – Happiness, Respect, Ambition and Resilience and pays tribute to the animals that represent Calveley’s educational houses. Rory has also been busy within the school’s library, creating some inspiring artwork to encourage the children to read with their favourite characters all around them.
The school’s head teacher Ray Rudd said, “I am extremely grateful for Boughey’s contribution towards the mural. We’re incredibly lucky to have been supported by the company on a number of our projects – we couldn’t wish for better neighbours!”
Boughey’s Managing Director Angela Carus paid a visit to the school to view the new artwork and meet children at the school which is home to a number of the company’s employees’ children.
Angela Carus said, “The mural is incredibly beautiful and is a credit to the artist and it will provide a special and remarkable welcome to the school. “We’re very happy to be able to contribute to such a positive project and it’s great to see some of our company values are aligned with those of the school.”
