The zone, which includes a water feature surrounded by trees, provides a space for students to gather their thoughts between classes.

The £500 donation is the latest to be made as part of a long-standing relationship with the Madani Schools Federation.

Explained Cressall operations manager David Moore: “Building and maintaining local relationships is very important to everybody at Cressall. We have a history of supporting the Madani School and are proud of the connection and friendship that has built through the past few years.”

Adds Mark Hendry, assistant business manager at the Madani Schools Federation: “The relaxation zone is well-used by the students of the Madani School. Thanks to Cressall, the zone is now enhanced by the restoration of the water fountain and planting of trees. We are sure students will enjoy the calm surroundings for many years to come.”
