A massive well done to our apprentices who picked up a paintbrush to help out Malvern Primary School in Huyton.

Eleven apprentices added a touch of colour to Malvern Primary School during this year’s Community Action week organised by local councillors. The kind-hearted young volunteers painted a classroom, outdoor benches, an outdoor stage and planters.

It was wonderful to see everyone come together. Our apprentices really enjoyed helping out at the school and the smiles their work brought to everyone’s faces made it all worthwhile.

At Livv, we are committed to supporting our communities and doing what we can to make a difference.

The work was organised after some of our staff approached council leader, Cllr Graham Morgan and Cllr Colin Dever to offer a helping hand. Leader of Knowsley Council, Cllr Morgan, said: “Livv Housing Group is an important partner in our borough and an organisation that we know is keen to give back to the local community.

“After linking their team up with Malvern School, it has been great to watch how this relationship has grown and what has been achieved.

“Seeing everyone working together for the same goal is so rewarding and a great example of Knowsley Better Together in action.

“I am really pleased to have been able to help and get involved and am grateful to everyone who took the time to be involved in this project.

“I know that the staff and pupils are incredibly appreciative of the combined efforts that have made such a positive difference.”

During Community Action week, other local volunteers also helped with essential repairs to doors and windows. Wolseley Building Merchants donated paint and tools. Businesses CCC Skip Hire, Fusion 21, SPIE UK, SSE electricals and Winvicc Construction also volunteered their help.

We are incredibly grateful for the support from Livv. By coming together in a week of community action, our school building, grounds and wider community were improved for all.

The team were professional and hardworking and there was a real buzz in the air created by their collective ambition. Again, our thanks are extended to all who volunteered. As we say at Malvern – together we are stronger!
