Pupils from Bowsland Green Primary School in Bradley Stoke recently entered a ‘Colour a Cheetah’ competition organised by local independent financial advice firm Aspirations, who sponsor the cheetah enclosure at the Wild Place Project near Cribbs Causeway.
Pupils sent in some highly imaginative, fantastically coloured cheetahs. The two winners received family tickets to the Wild Place Project. As a special ‘thank you’ to Bowsland Green for taking part, Aspirations also presented the school with £340 to spend on equipment for all the pupils to enjoy.
Speaking on behalf of Aspirations, Debbie Whitton said:
“We were given the tickets as part of our sponsorship of the Wild Place Project’s cheetahs and it is nice to be able to give something back to the families in our local community. We were especially delighted when Bowsland Green agreed to take part in our competition. My three children attended Bowsland – in fact the two eldest were among the first pupils to set foot in the school on the day it opened, so it is very special to my family too.”
“Congratulations to all the children who took part, especially Maja Lamberska and Ashmas Rizvi who won the family tickets.”
• There are still more tickets to be won. Go to the Aspirations website www.aspirations-ifa.com or our Facebook/Twitter pages, follow the competition instructions, and your family could win family tickets to Wild Place Project too!
