Local estate agent Robert Watts has answered the call for sponsorship from Birkenshaw CE Primary School to help fund and run their brand-new minibus.

Essential for providing equal opportunities to children at the local primary school, the minibus is key for transporting pupils to activities such as swimming lessons and sporting events. Due to the semi-rural location of the school, for many children, the minibus is a lifeline to extra-curricular activities.

Managing director of Robert Watts Estate Agents John Watts said: "We were delighted to help Birkenshaw CE Primary School with financial support towards their new minibus. The primary school is an integral part of our community in Birkenshaw and we knew that they were in need of a new minibus, so we were more than happy to assist.”

Mrs Martin, Headteacher at Birkenshaw CE Primary School commented on the support provided by the team at Robert Watts: “Having a school minibus enables us to take the children out of school to participate in events in the local and wider community as well as sporting and music events and competitions with other schools. Using the minibus for school trips reduces the cost for parents making these more accessible for everyone. None of this would be possible without the amazing support from our sponsors”
