Barrow plant supports local Pre-School with activity Packs

The Little Stars Pre School in Sileby, Leicestershire received 50 packs donated from the Barrow-upon Soar production plant.

Pre-school children love using activity packs from the Barrow Family Day, and they have even found a use for the box they were delivered in. The idea to donate the packs came from Barrow-upon Soar production plant Health and Safety Administrator Kelly Matthews, whose son Edward attends Little Stars Pre School in Sileby.

She said: “I knew that they would appreciate the gesture so it was no surprise that when I asked them if they would be interested they said ‘yes’. “I had already asked Plant Manager Sam Bucknall for permission so I took about 50 packs down to Little Stars and they were delighted with them. “There were also lots of packs of crayons and colouring pencils. Rhonda Thompson, who runs the pre-school, said the children were going to love using the packs.”

“They have even found a use for the crate that I used to transport them in! It is now used to store their lunch boxes. With the drop down sides it makes it easier for the young children to reach in and get their lunches.”
