Rather than leaving them at the bottom of a cupboard gathering dust, Norwich Partners decided to recycle their Christmas aprons by donating them to a local primary school for their art and design lessons.
Partner Voice rep James Clifft, whose mum is the headteacher of Northrepps Primary School knew the school was in need of aprons and had tried to secure funding through Community Matters.
“Given that Waitrose is big on recycling and giving back to the community, donating our old aproms seemed like the perfect solution”, he said.
The school of 32 children is hugely grateful for the aprons and has already got loads of use out of them during this terms project of making and painting traditional African masks.
