Tesco, Vauxhall, Barclays and Luton Borough council have helped Level Trust provide over a thousand children with learning packs for school.

The learning packs are full of stationary, craft equipment and a book, Boris The Brave And His First Day At School.

The packs were given to 1750 children to help them them get ready to start school in September.

Jane Malcolm, director of Level Trust, said: “The learning packs are a great way to help children prepare for the start of school.

“For some children, it will be the first time they have ever left their families, which can be very daunting when you are only four years old.

“The packs are full of items that will help kick start their learning and help them prepare for the types of activities they will be doing every day at school.”

Staff from Tesco, Vauxhall, Barclays and the council helped put the packs together, deliver them to schools and helped with the funding to purchase the contents.

Debbie Cavallo, manager of information technology at Vauxhall, said: “Vauxhall are proud to sponsor Level Trust.

“Volunteers among Vauxhall staff packed up for the little ones and delivered them to the local schools.

“Vauxhall’s warehouse operation was ideal for the large amount of stock that was needed to make nearly 2000 packs for rising fives.

“We had a very exhausting day but also a very rewarding one.”

Jane added: “We simply could not have provided this project to local children if it was not for the amazing support that these organisations gave.

“It truly was a partnership project. Luton is very lucky to have businesses which are so willing to support their local community.”
