Collect for Cash winners Scissett First school benefit
Sep 24 2009 Huddersfield Daily Examiner
PLAYTIME is even greater funtime at Scissett CE (A) First School thanks to the Examiner.
New playground equipment has been bought after it won £2,000 in last years Schools Collect for Cash campaign.
The school harnessed the power of the internet with online votes coming from someone serving in the army in Basra and a teacher’s relative in Brazil.
School bursar Terry France said: “We worked very hard in school to promote Collect for Cash. There is a great community spirit in small schools which is why we did so well.”
And your school could also benefit by collecting bonus online tokens with another being available online today from 9am to 9pm, just log onto the examiner website at www.examiner.co.uk and follow the links.
Last week 1,236 bonus tokens were collected online and there’s more on offer. Bonus online tokens will also be available on Friday October 2, Monday October 5 and Tuesday October 13.
There’s still lots of time for schools and communities to get involved in this year’s campaign. And there’s even a token to get you started at the foot of this page.Check out the list of schools for one near you and get collecting.
