A Christmas Giveaway
Pete had 12 size brand new 5 plastic bats that he got in a Sports Direct sale that he had no use for as he has got plenty of kit. So he offered them out for free on his Facebook page and they have all gone either to a keen young cricketer, or Santa, following a few parental requests. And 2/3 also went to local schools Sowerby Primary Academy and Topcliffe C of E Academy.
That set Pete thinking as he also had one spare cricket set, as in the photo, so he also offered this free on Facebook to a primary school, with the winner being the school that got the most parental comments/support. Two schools were well ahead in the votes being Topcliffe Academy and South Kilvington School so Pete decided that they would be joint winners and each get a cricket set.
With nearly 120 comments on Facebook, Pete was delighted with the level of parental engagement. In total seven other schools also had parental support so Pete decided that they would also get a cricket set so he ordered some more which should arrive in the next few days. There were many happy parents on seeing this news!
