YOUNGSTERS from Oldland Pre-school will be learning about road safety thanks to the fundraising efforts of a local company.

Warmley-based Gregor Heating handed over a cheque for £160 to the pre-school which will be spent on developing a space where tots can be taught about staying safe on our roads.

The company will choose a different local cause each quarter to benefit from its fundraising.

It follows Gregor's successful 30th birthday celebrations last year when staff raised a whopping £10,000 for Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal.

For the first quarter of 2017, Gregor chose to support Oldland Pre-school, a local establishment that provides care and education for children below school age.

The pre-school is already close to the hearts of several Gregor staff, whose children or grandchildren have previously attended the school. 

Having served the community for more than 40 years, the nursery is in the process of fundraising for a new building and equipment to create a more stimulating environment.

Pam Adams, Oldland Pre-school manager, said: “A big thank you to all the staff at Gregor for your kind donation. The funds raised will be put towards the development of our top playground into a space where we can teach children about road safety. Every donation can be put to such good use.”
