After a revamp during the summer holidays, Caythorpe Primary School has opted to donate their old furniture to less fortunate people in Gambia via the Nottinghamshire-based charity Aid2Gambia.

More than 200 items were sent in two vans, including 140 chairs, 60 tables, eight computer chairs, and a computer work station and three wooden tray units.

Katie Brockington, head of school, said: “It is brilliant to think that our old furniture is going to be put to good use and support the education of pupils who are much less fortunate than us.”

Aid2Gambia was formed in 2014 and works with the Early Child Development Association (ECDA) to identify schools which require equipment, even in the most rural of areas within Gambia.
