A team from Knightstone Housing raised money and donated board games for youngsters at a Weston-super-Mare primary school.

The tenancy sustainment team, based in Weston Gateway Business Park, gifted students of Bournville Primary School, in Selworthy Road, with 10 board games to be used at both their breakfast and after school clubs.

The idea came when the team decided they wanted to help local charities, and found a worthwhile scheme based at the primary school.

Team leader Gia Hancock said: “We decided to do a different kind of secret Santa this Christmas.

“We researched around the local area and rather than make a monetary donation, we decided to club some money together to buy board games, as it would be more useful for the kids.

“It is our way of helping out the local community, and every member of our team was completely on board with the idea.”
