Lincolnshire school children walk in style thanks to Allison Homes East’s Walk to School Week donation

To celebrate Walk to School Week, which is running from Monday 20th to Friday 24th May, our East team has donated drawstring bags to a primary school in Kirton.

Kirton Primary School, which is just under one mile away from our Frampton Gate development, received a donation of 100 drawstring bags.

With the donation, we are taking part in with Walk to School Week and hoping to encourage children to walk or cycle to school instead of drive, where possible. Walk to School Week is a campaign organised by the charity Living Streets and aims to teach children about the physical, wellbeing and environmental benefits of walking.

Jemma Wells, Assistant Headteacher at Kirton Primary School, said: “We are very keen to promote a healthy lifestyle and encourage children to walk to school if they are able to. As a school we remind children regularly about how to be a safe pedestrian and use the crossings that are available in the village. We thank Allison Homes for their kind donation of the drawstring bags, which we think look fantastic!”

Kelly Toms, Sales and Marketing Director at Allison Homes East, said: “Walk to School Week promotes a very important message, and we are delighted to have got involved by donating these drawstring bags to Kirton Primary School. We hope that the children will feel inspired to walk to school every day, if possible, and carry all their school supplies in their brand-new bags.

“Our Frampton Gate development is just a 15-minute walk away from Kirton Primary School, so we’d like to encourage any of our families to get involved with Walk to School Week too.”

Located on Middlegate Road in Frampton, Frampton Gate is a stunning development consisting of two, three, four and five bedroom homes.

The marketing suite and show homes are open Thursday to Monday, 10am to 5pm. To find out more, visit Frampton Gate or call 07483 092040.
