A building firm have donated hundreds of pounds worth of running kit to The Priory School to help them look their best during competitions. Princebuild of Gosberton provided the new sports tops after a teaching assistant who attended the competitions noticed their outfits were looking past their best. Now the pupils have brand-new tops with the Princebuild logo and in the company’s green and gold colours.
Karen Antcliffe, who organised the tops, said: “”It was the fact that I went to a cross-country competition in Norwich and the pupils’ running tops looked dowdy and not up to par. We noticed other schools were sponsored by building firms, so I had the idea to approach Princebuild. I got in contact in April to see if they would sponsor us and they were presented to us at an assembly. I’d just like to thank Princebuild for the kit. They spent over £400 providing us with 20 tops.”
