Town store stationery donation for school

Team members at Alnwick’s Wilkinson store donated a hamper of goodies to help pupils at the town’s Barndale House School.

Keen to support the local community, staff gave the youngsters a selection of stationery, including pens, pencils, paint and craft materials.

Children of all ages were then asked to use the equipment to create some colourful images which were submitted to the store team for judging.

Daniel Lawton was chosen as the school’s overall winner, fighting off tough competition from 21 entries, to receive a £15 Wilkinson’s voucher.

His bright and imaginative drawing has taken pride of place on the store’s community board.

Lee Wade, store manager, said: “We wanted to celebrate our new stationery range and thought the donation would be a fitting way to do this, as well as supporting a local school.”
