Cruden Building lends helping hand to Rainbow Family Centre

Rainbow Family Centre in Port Glasgow

Cruden Building, part of the Cruden Group and one of Scotland’s longest established construction businesses, has lent a helping hand to the Rainbow Family Centre in Port Glasgow, Inverclyde, by donating and building several new pieces of outdoor equipment for their nursery children to enjoy. 
The local nursery approached Cruden, who are building the new affordable housing development of 170 flats and 54 houses for River Clyde Homes at the nearby site of the former St Stephen’s school.
Cruden Building donated materials and built the new and engaging outdoor equipment to boost the nursey’s outdoor learning space for the children and to improve their shared playground space. The equipment, which includes mud kitchens, water activity walls, an outdoor den and a new large seating bench, will allow the children to get closer to nature and enjoy playing outdoors.
Michelle Murray from the Rainbow Centre said: “Thanks to the fantastic support of Cruden Building and River Clyde Homes, the outdoor play area has greatly improved, and the new equipment is ideal for our children to safely enjoy outdoor playing and learning activities.”
Gordon Lee from Cruden Building said: “We’re thrilled to support staff and children at the Rainbow Family Centre and we hope the children enjoy learning outdoors with the new equipment provided for years to come. It’s a real privilege to support the local communities we are working in and to see the difference that it makes first-hand.”
Sharon Bonnar, East Area Team Leader at River Clyde Homes, said: “We are pleased to be continuing to work alongside Cruden Building in supporting these projects. They are invaluable to local communities. We recognise that in these difficult times it is important that young children are still able to attend nursery and enjoy this fantastic equipment which is so vital for their health and wellbeing.”
This is the latest development in River Clyde Homes’ ambitious plans to build up to 750 new homes over the next five years and the first of ‘RCH+’ standard, where all properties will have a common design standard, across all future new build sites.
