Beoley First School in Redditch has enjoyed a jolly Christmas Fayre thanks to local family business Oakland International who generously sponsored the school’s Christmas Carousel.
Headteacher of Beoley First School, Ben Irving, said: “This year was the first opportunity for Beoley First School to come together as a community at Christmas for some time and it was made all the more special by the inclusion of a Victorian Carousel.
“We are enormously grateful to Oakland International for retaining local links and sponsoring the carousel. In doing so they helped us to raise much needed funds for our small village school.”
Having had their head office in Beoley for over twenty-years, total supply chain solutions provider Oakland International has strong community links and is active in supporting a range of educational and community initiatives both locally and further afield via their children’s charity the Oakland Foundation.
Oakland International Depot Manager Luke Attwell commented: “We were delighted to offer our help and it was great to be able to share in all the Christmas fun with the children, staff and parents.
“Christmas is such a wonderful time for giving, and as a local family business we continue to be committed to supporting our local community, so we were delighted to offer our help and support for this festive family event by sponsoring the school’s Christmas Carousel.”
