Despite last week’s adverse weather conditions and the ensuing logistical challenges – the Big Build will go ahead in THREE days’ time.
Volunteers from Premiership Rugby and their award winning HITZ Learning Academy, will be joining the teams from Fusion Community Initiatives, Wooden Spoon and Rugbytots, to deliver a life-enhancing build project for Brixham based Mayfield School Chestnut Centre, an incredibly special school for children with complex needs.
The teams will join mentors from Fusion Initiatives, to build a bespoke outdoor play space for the children at the Chestnut Centre. The project will also provide the platform for a dynamic and different team-building exercise, as well as providing invaluable life-skills for the youths from the HITZ Academy; facilitated by ex-military coaches and mentors from Fusion.
The plans for the outdoor space are challenging, including: multi-purpose jungle gym, raised planters, climbing frame and outside classroom.
It will be an incredibly rewarding achievement to build all of this in just eight hours, creating not just a stunning recreation space, but leaving behind a legacy for the school.
For each person involved – volunteers, Fusion mentors, and the staff and children at Mayfield, this will undoubtedly leave a lasting imprint.
