Pupils at Sneinton C of E Primary School have been presented with two new sports kit thanks to a donation by Nottingham-based marketing and PR agency Cartwright Communications.
The agency has made a £600 donation to buy two complete kits to support all school teams, which feature the Cartwright Communications logo emblazoned on the front of the shirts.
Rose Hayes, director at Cartwright Communications, presented the kits to pupils following a tour of the school to hear about the impact of this and previous donations. The agency delivers ongoing support including the gifting of a classroom rug to inspire learning and linking clients with the school to make additional contributions.
Hayes said: “The school is dedicated to providing children in Sneinton with learning and development opportunities while also creating well-rounded individuals, and we know that sport plays an integral part in both personal and physical development.
“We hope that the pupils feel proud to represent the school in their new kits and feel even more encouraged to take up sporting activities. A social pledge that forms a key part of our ambitious environmental, social and governance goals, we want to connect with a breadth of organisations in the communities surrounding our Nottingham, London and Birmingham offices.”
