The competition ran throughout the summer across all Unitas Wholesale fascia stores with retailers being provided with window posters, shelf talkers and flyers to promote the competition to their customers and generate interest within their community.The winning schools were The Vyne School, Basingstoke: Airth Primary School, Airth: Condorrat Primary School, Cumbernauld: Rosehill Junior School, Rotherham:

Alderbrook School, Solihull: Molescroft Primary School, Beverley: John Spendluffe Technology College, Alford: Wexham Court Primary School, Berkshire: Eastbrook School, Dagenham: and St Bernadette’s Primary School, Motherwell, Scotland.

“We are really pleased with our new sports equipment and the children are making great use of it,” said Christine Boyle, Head Teacher, St Bernadette’s Primary School. “It was a pleasant surprise to learn that we had been selected for £200 of free sport equipment.”

Funding in education is extremely tight with escalating costs preventing schools from being able to invest in certain areas of school life, with PE equipment being one.
