Greater Anglia has donated items left over from the refurbishment of offices at Norwich train station to a Norfolk creche.
Youngsters at Chicken Cottage Childcare in Bawdeswell, near Dereham, received easels, whiteboards and other old office equipment.
Greater Anglia site delivery manager and keen environmentalist Philip Hogg said: “While I was clearing out the old offices [at Norwich station] I found the easels and whiteboards, which were too good to just throw away.
“I knew of the creche as I live locally and I was really pleased when they said they’d love to make good use of them.”
Recycling is part of Chicken Cottage’s ethos and the creche has discovered that items like old computer keyboards or devices with switches help to develop children’s fine motor skills through imaginative play.

Creche manager Carol Taylor said: “We were really grateful to receive these items from Greater Anglia and the children are really enjoying using them.
"We have magnetic letters on one whiteboard so that the children can begin to learn basic phonics and spellings and we use the other for drawing, which is great because it wipes clean to be reused the next day.”
