Charity education centre FACET had a boost when a March firm donated money to help replace stolen tools.
The college in Marwick Road suffered a break in and several items from the horticultural class were taken over night.
Juliet Findley, internal account manager at Smurfit Kappa, said: “The team at Smurfit Kappa felt they had to do something to help and donated £300 to replace some of what was taken.”
“We are very happy to have contributed to replacing the equipment so that FACET can continue this great service.”
Manager Kris Harrold said “We were really touched by the generosity of Smurfit Kappa and also the people of March in general, we’ve had equipment and donations given to us ranging from individual bits like garden tools through to substantial donations.
