McCarthy and Stone's Audlem team extends the hand of friendship to St James School

McCarthy and Stone, the housebuilder behind Lyme Wood Grange Retirement Living development on McKelvey Way in Audlem, has donated a buddy bench to neighbouring Audlem St James Primary School in order to help foster friendship outside of the classroom.

The brightly-coloured bench, which is now positioned in the playground, is intended to promote positive mental wellbeing, by giving pupils a special place where they can go if they are looking for a companion.

Fiona Brooks, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy and Stone North West, said: "We are delighted that Audlem St James Primary School are making full use of the buddy bench. We understand how important it is for people of any age to feel a sense of belonging and to have a friend they can turn to when they feel the need to talk. Loneliness isn't just something that affects older people — it can affect everyone, whatever their age. We hope pupils at Audlem St James Primary School continue to develop long-lasting friendships from the bench."
