CHILDREN at a Rugby infant school can now pretend they are on their holidays, building sandcastles right outside their classroom door.
Over the last few months parents, carers and grandparents with children at Bawnmore Infant School have been busy collecting the Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers totalling £20,000.
The vouchers have now been exchanged for equipment donated by Sainsbury’s to the school.
One of the main pieces of equipment was a pirate ship-shaped sandpit for the reception glass which has been installed in their outside classroom at the school in Bawnmore Road.
As well as the sandpit there are also buckets and spades to go with it.
Rachel Fordham, PR ambassador based at the Dunchurch Road Sainsbury’s Store, visited the school before half term for the official handing over the of the equipment.
Since Active Kids was launched in 2005, Sainsbury’s has donated £1,536,932 to Warwickshire schools.
