New Directions Education Birmingham Branch attended a fair at Shaw Hill Primary School in inner city Birmingham on the 14th October. Eve Taylor (senior Secretary) and over 100 pupils greeted us with a big smile when we set up the famous Inflatable Penalty Shootout on the school grounds.
New Directions were facing fierce competition against the old time favourite Bouncy Castle but the children quickly queued up behind the line and started kicking and scoring. We promoted “everyone’s a winner” and gave out small tokens for trying and bigger prizes (supplied by New Directions) for actually getting it in. The Penalty Shoot Out helped to raise £800 for the school.
Eve has made New Directions her first preferred supplier and we have already started supplying staff to the school. A happy ending to a happy story!
