Manx Utilities’ substations and building officer John Ritson donated the wood to Queen Elizabeth II High School.

Year 10 students have used the wood to make bird boxes that will be sited in school grounds to attract birds and encourage students to engage with the natural environment. 

Hedgehog hibernation hutches have also been made.

Jason Coole, a teacher at the school, said: ‘Donations like this make a massive difference and we are extremely grateful to John and his team.’

Manx Utilities said: ‘We are delighted that we are able to help both the school and local charities by recycling supplies that provide benefit for our environment and we look forward to receiving updates from students on their projects.’

The school recently held a Sustainability Day for all pupils.
