Highgrove lends hand
HIGHGROVE Bathrooms store owners have banded together to support children through the Smith Family’s Learning for Life education program.
Highgrove director James Sinclair said all the nation’s franchisees were on board with the program.
“We have over 48 stores nationally sponsoring 117 Australian students,” he said.
“Whether it be through buying books and uniforms or making sure kids can go on excursions with the rest of their class, I’m passionate about education and the difference it can make to a child’s future.”
Highgrove Bathrooms is also distributing over 3000 basketballs throughout Australian schools via their metro and regional stores in a bid to encourage attendance and good behaviour at school.
Smith Family acting chief executive Judy Barraclough said supporting a child’s education was the best way to help break the cycle of disadvantage.
“By giving disadvantaged children and young people the support and resources they need to achieve their full potential, our impact will have a lasting effect on those we help today, and for generations to come,” she said. “And we couldn’t do it without the generous support of companies like Highgrove Bathrooms.”
