Kingfisher Windows Supports School’s Santa Success
Kingfisher Windows has received a thank you after once again helping to support a local school’s annual Christmas event. Parklands Primary in Seacroft, one of the most deprived areas of Leeds, opened its doors to provide the children and community with an amazing Christmas experience.
Businesses, both local and national, donated 1,200 presents and more than £15,000 worth of food to ensure the event was a huge success.
“Wow! What a day December 23rd was,” commented Dianne McElwee, Business Manager at Parklands Primary School. “The generous support we received enabled us to make it our best Christmas event yet.
“We welcomed around 700 visitors to the school and they had a wonderful afternoon, with Santa’s Grotto, a bouncy castle, Christmas lunch and even a life-size polar bear! Every child received a fabulous gift and left with a huge smile.
“We are still buzzing from the excitement that the day generated. The appeal is becoming a tradition for our families and it makes a huge difference to them at Christmas time. We couldn’t do it without the support we receive and so we are hugely grateful.”
Parklands Primary School is a real success story. Four years ago, it was ranked in the bottom five percent of the UK’s schools, but is now in the top one percent and has earned an ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted.
Deborah Beeley, Sales & Marketing Manager at Kingfisher, said: “The transformation at Parklands has been astounding and we’re delighted that the event went so well. We’re happy to have contributed to that success as it’s important to support worthy local causes like this and put something back into the community.”
