Structural Soils donates TV to local school

January 11, 2021

RSK company Structural Soils is delighted to have gifted a television used in the delivery of ground investigation works for the Lower Thames Crossing in Gravesham, Kent, to a local school. The 85” Smart TV is already being put to good use in its new home at The Hub at Helen Allison School, which specialises in providing educational support to children on the autism spectrum. 

The Lower Thames Crossing is a highways project that will connect communities, boost the economy and add vital extra resilience to the road network, while reducing pressure on the existing Dartford Crossing. It is arguably the most ambitious road project since the M25 opened 30 years ago. It will also include the world’s third-largest bored road tunnel. Structural Soils is one of the contractors delivering the ground investigation work, including ground penetrating radar and drilling services. Most recently, they have been working on the delivery of ground investigation works from the south bank of the River Thames to the A2/M2 in Gravesend.

“With our site work at a section of the Lower Thames Crossing in Gravesham drawing to a close, we were clearing out our compound and wanted to give something back to the local community,” says Mark Postle-Hacon, Structural Soils Project Manager. “One of our management team is local and recommended that we contact the nearby Helen Allison School to see if they would like to rehome an 85” Sony Bravia Smart TV, which we bought for the site back in March. They took us up on our offer and we were delighted to deliver it to them in November.”

Lisa Waters, Senior Assistant Head at Helen Allison School, said: “On behalf of the school, I would like to thank you for your kind donation of an 85’’ Sony Bravia Smart TV. We plan to use this fantastic new additional to the school to aid with class group work, and I am sure a few of the staff have their eyes on utilising this too for assembly presentations!

“This donation will be a huge benefit to our students in improving social interactions with their peers and engaging them with group work. Your support is very much appreciated.”
