Away with a manger! Saltend based Vivergo takes nativity farm into local primary schools
An East Yorkshire business is spreading some Christmas joy by taking its very own nativity farm into three local schools in the run up to the big day.
Saltend-based Vivergo, which is one of Europe’s largest producers of bioethanol and protein rich animal feed, visit three schools local to its plant: Paull Primary School, Preston Primary School and Hedon Inmans Primary School.
The visits, which will take place between 5-12 December, will feature a troop of animals including a donkey, calf and rabbits, and a host of Christmas craft activities for the children to enjoy.
Mark Chesworth, Managing Director at Vivergo said: “We’re always looking for opportunities to contribute to the local community, and there’s no better time to spread some cheer than at Christmas.
“We employ over 100 people from the Hull area, and events such as this give us the chance to directly give back to the local population, especially as several of our employees are parents at the schools we’re visiting.
“Our Christmas events at local schools have had a very warm reception in past years, where children have had the chance to create stockings, mugs and Christmas cards – we expect that this year’s event will go down a storm with the schools.”
