Playground hopes for token collectors

The seventh Cash for Schools token is printed in today's newspaper.


The Advertiser token-collect initiative will see £20,000 divided among participating schools with cash provided by the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust.

Tokens are being printed in the Maidenhead, Twyford and Burnham editions of the Advertiser until March 27.

Each registered school, which collects a minimum of just two tokens per pupil, will guarantee themselves a slice of the cash.

Ruksan Broachi, admin officer for The Queen Anne Royal Free CE School in Chaucer Close, Windsor, said everyone is collecting tokens.

"We missed out on the money last year but we are determined that this year we will get some of the cash," she said.

"We are hoping to spend any money we do get to add to our outdoor play equipment."

Last year participating schools received between £207 and £2,000 according to a ratio of how many tokens they collected per pupil.

The 2014 scheme will again have a top prize of £2,000 and a runner-up prize of £1,500, leaving a £16,500 prize fund to be split between the remaining participating schools.

The scheme is open to all state nursery, infant, junior, first, primary, middle and secondary schools in the news area covered by the Advertiser series.

Since it began in 2006 Cash For Schools has pumped £160,000 into the area’s schools.
