Angela Wallace, Centre and Operations Manager at TSPC, expressed her pride in the initiative:

“It has been incredibly rewarding to take part in this initiative, and we’re proud to sponsor Pounds for Primaries 2024 – especially in a time when rising costs are felt nationwide, and education faces cutbacks.”

She also highlighted the impact on the pupils:

“A few of our directors had the pleasure of hand-delivering the cheques to all the fantastic pupils who collected thousands of tokens for their school. It was incredible to see in person how much passion the pupils had, with lots of them eager to use the winnings to make their school’s goals a reality.”
