Store’s Christ­mas book gifts de­light preschool chil­dren

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Nuts & Bolts -

Young­sters at Lit­tle Ark Preschool in Sin­gle­ton were de­lighted to re­ceive a box of chil­dren’s books.

Sains­bury’s By­brook do­nated 40 of its very own book, Mog’s Christ­mas Calamity, to the Wes­ley School Road preschool.

The book was part of the store’s Christ­mas ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign, which shows Mog the cat save Christ­mas af­ter wreck­ing its own­ers’ home.

The ad­vert was hugely pop­u­lar when it reached screens in Novem­ber and Sains­bury’s Mog toys sold out in days.

Sue Oliver, Sains­bury’s spokesman, said: “The prof­its from the book were do­nated to im­prove child lit­er­acy so we wanted to do our bit too.

“We do­nated a few boxes to other schools and some to the Padua ward at the Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal.

“The chil­dren were all able to take one home.”
