School needs you to help make its dream come true

PUPILS at a school in Ash­ford are ask­ing read­ers to do­nate vouch­ers in this news­pa­per to help them win a £7,500 makeover for their play­ground.

The school has about 100 to­kens so far but with 210 pupils it needs to get many more to be in with a chance of win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion.

The school get­ting the most votes on a pro-rata ba­sis, com­pared to the pupil head count, will win.

Year 6 pupils Mil­lie Cronin, 10, and Grace Hollingsworth, 11, en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion, run by the KM Group and Denne, so their play­ground at Vic­to­ria Road Pri­mary School can be more fun. They are com­pet­ing with 19 schools across the county.

James and Harry from the school’s re­cep­tion class, pic­tured, both say they would love a climb­ing frame.

Ma­jor road­works are due to start out­side the school and it is hoped the money will help cheer the chil­dren up over the noise and dust of dig­gers.

Read­ers can help the chil­dren by col­lect­ing the vouch­ers on this page and do­nat­ing them to the school.

The school re­cep­tion has a box for any­one who wants to do­nate di­rectly.
