Supporting local charities and community causes


Turnfurlong Junior School nominated by The Arc purchaser to receive charity donation

This month's winner of Shanly Group's charity prize draw is Elizabeth Donoso, a customer at Shanly Homes' The Arc development in Aylesbury. She has nominated Turnfurlong Junior School, attended by her 10-year-old son, as the recipient of the donation. The Aylesbury-based school is located a short drive away from The Arc, where Elizabeth and her son moved to in August.

Elizabeth chose to donate the £2,500 to Turnfurlong Junior School hoping that the funds would allow it to continue helping local charities by involving children in a range of community-focused activities from a very young age.

Tamra Booth, Operations Director at the Shanly Group, said: "We are passionate about helping local schools through our charitable arm, Shanly Foundation, and so were delighted that Ms Donoso had chosen to support Turnfurlong Junior School."

Elizabeth Donoso, buyer at The Arc, said: "I was delighted to learn I'd been selected as the winner of the charity prize draw and didn't think twice before nominating Turnfurlong Junior School. My son loves it, and I'm grateful that the school teaches children the importance of sharing and being kind from a very early age."

Jo Divers, headteacher at Turnfurlong Junior School, said: "We strive to make our school the best place for the children, both academically and in terms of extra-curricular activities. We were so pleased to hear that we would be recipients of this donation. It will make such a difference to the activities we can arrange for our pupils."
