The pupils at Parley First School are enjoying their fabulous new Woodland Play Equipment thanks to the Bags of Help scheme at Tesco Ferndown and the John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation.

The JTYAF applied for funding from the scheme where the money raised by the sale of carrier bags is being used to fund thousands of local projects.  Customers ‘vote’ for their chosen charity and the charity with the most votes wins £4,000, second place £2,000 and third place £1,000.

The JTYAF is delighted to announce that thanks to their supporters they were lucky enough to receive the top prize of £4,000, which has made a huge impact on the lives of hundreds of children at Parley First School. This fantastic new equipment has provided an inspiring and challenging area where the children can develop a range of physical skills. Part of the drive at the school, to keep the children fit and active and it is certainly having the desired effect. The new play trail is hugely popular with all the pupils.

The JTYAF and all the children at Parley First School would like to pass on their thanks to everyone who popped a blue token in the box for this exciting project. You have put a lot of smiles on a lot of young faces.
