REEDS RAINS DONATION
Martongate Primary School are raising money towards outdoor learning equipment for KS1 and KS2. So far they have received donations from Tesco ‘ Groundworks’ Grant, parents and local businesses. Before Christmas, Reeds Rains asked the school if they could help with their campaign and in return would donate money towards the equipment. Parents offered to put an advertisement board outside their house, whilst Reeds Rains held raffles to win a hamper at the school’s Shopping Evening and the Christmas Fair. The School would like to thank Reeds Rains for their donation, the parents who advertised and all those who have supported the School with fundraising so far.
Andy Vidler, the Branch Manager of Reeds Rains Bridlington added, Reeds Rains Bridlington have been involved within the town for many years now. With the majority of the staff within the branch being parents we all decided to run a couple of events close to all our hearts. This year we decided that they would like to help out the children in and around Bridlington during Christmas 2017. Firstly we did the Mission Christmas Toy campaign where we acted as a drop off point for anybody wishing to donat toys to under privileged children. This was a massive success. Secondly we ran our Reeds Rains board campaign supporting Martongate Primary School. The campaign in conjunction with a couple of raffles we ran for the school; helped us raise over £300 which we have happily donated to Martongate Primary School. Reeds Rains would like to thank the very generous people of Bridlington in making both campaigns a massive success.
