Offshore accommodation and workspace specialist HB Rentals has donated a storage container worth £4,000 to Crombie Primary School located in Westhill, Aberdeenshire.  

Primary six pupils sent a letter to the company asking for help in storing their outdoor play equipment – which includes everything from footballs and space hoppers to chess and draughts pieces.

HB Rentals kindly decided to donate a 20ft x 8ft steel container from its rental fleet, which was then customised according to the school’s specific requirements to incorporate power and lighting, wall lining for thermal insulation and storage racks to help keep everything neat and tidy.

Henry Hepburn, head teacher at Crombie Primary School said: “We are ecstatic to have a brand new container for storing all of our outdoor play equipment. We were unable to buy a suitable good quality unit ourselves, so to have HB Rentals kindly donate one is fantastic and I know both the children and teachers are so grateful.

Norman Porter, Managing Director, HB Rentals, commented: “We think it’s important to support the local communities that we live and work in, and our team were very enthusiastic about helping the children at Crombie Primary School to improve their playground.”
