FMP is proud to announce sponsorship of a Buddy Bench at Bishopston Primary School in Swansea. This means that pupils at the school now have a safe place to go when feeling lonely or bullied.

Buddy Bench is a simple idea, open to all schools in the Swansea area, designed to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. Students who feel lonely or left out can sit on the buddy bench and ask to be included without saying a word.

If a student doesn’t have someone to play with, they can sit on the bench and the other students know to ask them to come and join in.

Painted in bright primary colours the Buddy Benches are manufactured from recycled plastics and are hygienic and easy to clean.

Says Neil Melmoth, Director of FMP Motor Factors, “The Buddy Bench initiative offers us a fantastic opportunity to engage with our community and give something back.  We are proud to support this initiative which aims to prevent bullying in schools by creating a caring and respectful environment.”
