Buddy Benches

Home » Projects » Community » Buddy Benches

In 2017 the Ellesmere Port Shed approached ASDA to fund local primary schools with ten Buddy Benches, which are placed in the school playground for use by pupils that are in need of ‘Buddy’ or friend. If a child sits on the bench, then other children and teachers know the help is needed.

Men in Sheds built the benches and delivered them to a range of schools in the Ellesmere Port area. The schools were delighted to receive a free bench and ASDA were happy that they were able to reach into the community so effectively with their funding.
