A PRIMARY school has been given £150 worth of sports equipment.

The Grove Primary School got the new equipment after getting sponsorship for their annual sports day from water company Perfectly Clear, which also provided bottles of water and medals for the event.

Around 200 children took part in running, egg and spoon and sack races.

Bernadette Ash from The Grove Primary School said: “We were delighted that Perfectly Clear sponsored our sports day and helped to make the day such a success.

“The donation of £150 was really helpful and it will be invested on new sports equipment for our school which we can use all year round.

“Furthermore, the donated water kept the children and their parents hydrated throughout the day.”

Katerina Gilbert, from the company, said: “Sponsoring local primary schools’ sports days across the country has been so much fun and seeing the kids joining in and having fun with sports is the ideal way to wrap up the school year on a positive note.

“We are pleased the children at The Grove Primary School had a great day.”
