One of the oldest pools in Marlborough has been given a new lease of life.

Blenheim School has been gifted $2500 to put towards a pool cover for their outside swimming area.

It is the latest community group to benefit from the Harcourts Foundation.

Harcourts Marlborough owner Mark Davies says they like to help locally and donate funds every three months to deserving projects.

Children at the school were excited to get the news, but even more excited to see the giant cheque, he says.

“The pool is used a lot in summer and it’s an awesome school with great teachers.

“We love to help out kids if we can, literally giving money to good causes like this”.

The Harcourts Foundation was formed in 2008,

Sales consultants, business owners, offices and franchises have contributed significantly to the $5.8million distributed to community groups and charities globally.

Blenheim school joins Hospice Marlborough who were recently given money to buy a new washing machine.

“The hospice is core to everyone. There aren’t a lot of rules about who we can support but there is an application process to go through and criteria that apply,” says Mark.

“We’re happy to help if we can”.
