Unitas Wholesale awards ten winning schools with sports equipment

Unitas Wholesale asked customers of Today’s, Day-Today and Lifestyle Express fascia stores to nominate their local school for a chance to win a share of £2,000 to spend on sports equipment.

A total of ten winning schools have been awarded with brand-new equipment to the value of £200.

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.

We are pleased to announce the winning schools as follows:

  • The Vyne School, Basingstoke
  • Airth Primary School, Airth, Scotland
  • Condorrat Primary School, Cumbernauld, Scotland
  • Rosehill Junior School, Rotherham
  • Alderbrook School, Solihull
  • Molescroft Primary School, Beverley
  • John Spendluffe Technology College, Alford
  • Wexham Court Primary School, Berkshire
  • Eastbrook School, Dagenham
  • 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 already,” said Mrs 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 always extremely tight with escalating costs year-on-year preventing schools from being able to invest in certain areas of school life, with PE equipment being one of these.

“On behalf of the PE department and students at John Spendluffe Technology College we would like to extend our thanks primarily to the person who nominated us for this prize and also to Unitas Wholesale for the fantastic equipment which is now being enjoyed by more than 600 studentsJohn Spendluffe Technology College
