Active Kids vouchers wanted!

Thank you so much  to everyone who has brought in Active Kids vouchers from Sainsburys  this year.  We will be able to swap them for some great sports equipment for use by all age groups.

The deadline is looming for the vouchers and we will be counting ours up and submitting them soon, so please bring any you still have into school by this Friday. The collection box is on the table just outside our Reception, clearly identifiable with the Active Kids branding. Thanks again!
