Newbridge Primary School has received a donation following the sales of children meals at the Locksbrook Inn.
For the last six months, the pub has donated 50p from the sale of every children’s meal, raising an impressive £1,165 for the school. The fundraising is an ongoing campaign, with the pub choosing a new charity or local cause every six months.
The money will be used towards replacing windows, painting walls and equipment. Head teacher Gill Kennaugh invited Joe Cussens, Bath Pub Co managing director, and some of The Locksbrook staff to attend the children’s afternoon assembly. The assembly focussed on how donations to the school really help make a difference to the children’s education.
“Thank you, sincerely, to the Bath Pub Company who generously donated £1,165 to Newbridge Primary School,” says Kennaugh. “Our school and wider community are very important to us, and through our school values we promote collaboration and citizenship.
“The funds donated will support our plans to enhance our school site,” continues Kennaugh. “We want to make areas of it more accessible, whilst promoting a healthy lifestyle and supporting everyone’s wellbeing. Thank you to everyone concerned within the company; this donation will make a difference to everyone.”
“We’re delighted that we’ve been able to support our local primary school and would like to thank all our customers who have helped us to make this happen,” adds Cussens. “We believe that a good pub should be more than just about serving great food and drink – it should be at the heart of the community and look for ways to support that community, just as our customers support us. Presenting this cheque to the school was a real thrill – it was lovely to meet all the children and hear how our contribution will help the school.”
