……We cover the County as well! One of the best High Schools in South Leicestershire (Ofsted “Outstanding” http://thomasestley.org.uk/parents/ofsted-report/), is Thomas Estley Community College in Broughton Astley.
When we heard that they had a very keen, talented girl’s netball team, but no proper kit, we joined forces with another local business to provide the team with a smart new strip!
PE teacher at Thomas Estley, Sarah Kavannagh commented: “When Readings offered to sponsor our new strip with their smart new logo, we could not believe it! The girls on the team feel fabulous when they step out onto the Netball court. We play all over Leicestershire and while we’ve always been able to hold our own against the competition when we’re playing netball, we’ve not been able to compete when it comes to kit. All that has now changed! We’re having a fantastic season and the team has a real spring in its step. It’s so nice that one of the largest independent Estate Agents in Leicester are helping out in local communities such as ours!”
Readings director Will Ravenhill added: “The staff and pupils at Thomas Estley work so hard for each other. This is reflected in their excellent OFSTED report. Like many schools in Leicestershire, though, funding from central government is limited. It, therefore, feels great to do something very small and philanthropic, but which has had a great effect on those members of the netball team. It’s important that as business owners, we understand that we are also part of the community. We’ll be following the team with great interest this year!”
