Bovis Homes has donated The Bad Apples books to schools 
Bovis Homes has sponsored 180 educational books, teaching pupils about the dangers of underage drinking, bullying and vandalism, at six schools across the county.
 
The book, The Bad Apples, is part of the Barney and Echo series and also comes with educational resources aimed at providing fun and interactive ways for primary school children to learn about important social issues. 
 
Louise Macrae, regional marketing manager at Bovis Homes said: “Bovis Homes is proud to be involved with this important community initiative in Staffordshire.
 
“It has been great to be able to contribute to children’s education by sponsoring The Bad Apples books. We would like to wish all the children good luck as they work through the resource.”
 
The schools include All Saints Church of England Aided Primary School in Bednal; Barnfields Primary School in Wildwood; Penkridge Middle School; and Silkmore Primary Academy, Flash Ley Community Primary School and Burton Manor Primary School in Stafford.
 
The book series is published by the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain; an organisation set up by serving and retired police officers to help provide a safer life and inclusion to disadvantaged children.
 
Kelly Griffiths, Barney and Echo educational resources UK project director, said: “The Police Community Clubs of Great Britain would like to thank all local community-minded businesses who have backed this school campaign- without them many children would be without this vital educational resource.”
