A primary school in Leyland has been donated educational books on construction to inspire the next generation of Architects, Engineers and Site Managers.

Woodlea Junior School has received a donation of 45 books written by graduates on David Wilson Homes’ ASPIRE Programme. Named ‘We Can Build’, it takes readers on the journey of building a house with various professions in the homebuilding industry.

Aimed at younger pupils, it introduces readers to the basic building blocks of the many professions required in the industry and 100% of the profits of the book sales are going to The Prince’s Trust; a charity that helps connect young people with mentors, career opportunities and provide pathways into inspiring futures.
