Children at Waddington All Saints School will find it easier to study IT, thanks to local builders merchant, Jackson, funding the installation of bench tables in the computer room.

The school commissioned Paul Dalton Joinery Ltd, a local business, to install the tables and Jackson Building Centres, which has their head office and showroom in Lincoln, who funded the project.

Jackson’s managing director, Andy Williams, visited the school to see the children using the computer room. He said: “We have a strong relationship with the school and help them wherever we can.

“Many of our staff and customers have children who are students here.”

Williams explained that the children previously had “odd tables” and had to prop their computers up.

He added: “We were delighted to help and, being purpose-built, the new benches make it much easier for them to use their PCs.”
