With UK headquarters in Manchester, Franke has donated 600 water bottles to Lime Tree Primary Academy in Sale, to help local school children stay healthy and hydrated.
The donation will allow the school to provide over 500 pupils and every staff member with a water bottle for the new school year in September and were also able to give them out to recent Year 6 leavers.
The donation coincides with the 10-year anniversary of Lime Tree Primary’s Forest School where children can attend activity sessions in the woods and farm, where they play and learn forest skills.
The school is keen to encourage pupils to stay hydrated and when taking part in outdoor learning, sports and team building games.
Forest School and Outdoor Learning team leader at Lime Tree Academy Janet Green said: “We would like to thank Franke for their generous donation.
“They came at the perfect time as we are celebrating 10 years of Forest School. Hydration for all our pupils is so highly important as it keeps them healthy and focused as they go through the school day, both inside and outside of the classroom.
“We are a very active school and being able to have a water bottle to take outside to Forest School and other outdoor sessions is essential.”
Cluster commercial controller at Franke David Pearse, with a daughter who attends Lime Tree Academy, organised the donation and commented: “We were thrilled to play a part in Lime Tree Primary Academy’s 10-year Forest School anniversary with the donation of the water bottles.
“Supporting education and the wellbeing of young learners is a cause we are passionate about, and we were pleased to be able to contribute to such a dedicated and active school.”
