Barnack donated 10 tonnes of sand and five tonnes of materials including gravel, pebbles and play bark.

Debbie Queen, Sacrewell’s general manager, said: “We’re grateful to Barnack Estates. These donations have made a huge difference to us.”

Mr Facer said: “We’re delighted to help Sacrewell develop these exciting play areas.

“Sacrewell is a much loved local institution and has always offered children and families plenty of opportunities to play indoors and out.

“The new play areas will allow children to exercise their imaginations as they take on the challenge of the Trec or dig fortreasure in the sandpit.”
