Children were given free wallets as part of a scheme to encourage them to collect vouchers for sports equipment.

Pupils at St Giles C of E Primary School, Wroxham School and Oakmere Primary School received the new Active Kids wallets from supermarket chain Sainsburys.

Sainsburys customer service manager Jade Almira-Cruz and customer service team leader Michaela Kyriacou met children and teachers from Oakmere Primary School this week.

Last year, the pupils bought footballs, tennis racquets, skipping ropes, hoops and assorted playground euipment with the Active Kids vouchers they collected from the store.

Headteacher Julie Lilly said: “Joining Active Kids has made a massive difference to our teaching of the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle.

“We’re hoping to collect even more vouchers this year and hope these wallets will encourage our parents to collect and donate their vouchers at the end of the scheme.”
