The Herald and Messenger newspapers teamed up with Country Market in Bordon at the beginning of May to launch the X-citing Projects Campaign. The campaign gave local groups the chance to win £1,000 and we are delighted to announce that Binsted Primary School is the first winner of the Country Market X-citing Projects Campaign.
As winners, Binsted Primary School were awarded £1,000, which they will use to purchase an interactive whiteboard which will be placed in the school hall. It will be used for lessons, presentations, project work and sports coaching. It has been found that the use of interactive whiteboards lead to consistent gains across both key stages especially in Maths, English and Science.
Head Teacher, Mrs Sharron Morton wanted to thank everyone who voted for them: "We are so thankful to be receiving such an incredible amount of money and can't thank Country Market enough. To be given the opportunity to buy this equipment is a dream come true. We could not have achieved it without the support of the people that voted for us and our thanks goes out to each and every one of them."
Dean Marshall, Partner of Country Market, commented: “We have been overwhelmed with the response to our X-citing Projects Campaign, firstly with how many groups came forward to nominate themselves but secondly, with how many people voted. A huge congratulations again to Binsted School and I am looking forward to seeing how they get on with their new interactive whiteboard.”
The X-citing Project Campaign offers local charities, organisations and projects the chance of winning £1,000 to spend on anything they would like that will help them to enhance their service.
Country Market has now re-opened the nominations and is encouraging readers to nominate a group that you feel deserves the £1,000 fund.
