Pupils cast aside their old football kit for a brand new strip courtesy of a fundraising drive by an Alfreton clothes shop.
The youngsters of Woodbridge Junior School in Alfreton had nearly worn their old kit through - so staff at Bon Marche on the town’s high street held a bring and buy book sale to raise £500 for a 15-piece sky blue new home strip.
The fundraising drive was organised by Bon Marche sales assistant Rebecca Day, 34, from Willow Close in the town, whose football mad son, Luke, ten, goes to the school.
She said: “My son plays for the school team and I noticed the kit looking a little shabby. I asked my boss whether we could do some fundraising and we ended up buying them a 15-piece strip!”
Rebecca added that the youngsters love their new threads - some even said it would make them run faster.
