Key Worker Kids – Update

An update for the Whilton Locks Key Worker Kids promotion:

Friday 3rd April. We are appealing on BBC Radio Northampton today – listen out for us!
Today, we are going out to three schools and ensuring every child attending today gets a pack. Thanks to your fantastic generousity we will be delivering contactlessly to Harpole Primary School, Northamptonshire, The Grange School, Daventry and Brookhurst Primary School in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.

Here are the details again so you can get involved:
We are hearing so much about Key Workers – mostly directed to the NHS and the incredible responsibility, dedication and professionalism they are showing during this COVID-19 crisis. They are awesome. Equally awesome are the Emergency Services, Care Workers, Teachers, Social Workers, Delivery Drivers, Essential Shop Workers, Call Centre Operators, Posties, Utility Workers (Gas, Water, Electricity etc), Armed Forces, Local and National Government Workers and all those helping others during this time. All awesome, all key workers and all with kids at school, when all the other kids are at home. We wondered what we could do for these Key Worker Kids – and we thought you might like to help too.
Key Worker Kids

We have put together a Key Worker Kids pack and we’ll deliver one (that is sold) to each Key Worker Kid at a local school or nursery that is looking after them. We’ll randomly choose a number of Schools/Nurseries – It’s Happy Easter’s all around.

Each pack contains:
A Premium Easter Egg (yum), a Planting Pack (something to do) – compost, seed packs, pots, – and a pebble (something else to do; a bit of a trend is to paint them) and your love. You can add a special message too, to the child.

We have just 300 packs for Key Worker Kids, and each pack costs £5. You can order one HERE.

What we’ll do:
We’ll add your name/details on our “Easter Egg Roll of Honour” on our website (you can choose to remain anonymous, if preferred) and state where the packs went. We’ll deliver them free to the chosen school – ensuring every kid gets one – and do it all contactlessly. It’ll be like the Easter Bunny has sent something special – on behalf of you. We’ll also love you forever. We’d offer you a virtual hug today and a real hug when all this COVID-19 is over and our store re-opens.

So can you be awesome too? Can you spare a fiver to say Happy Easter to a Key Worker Kid? Go on, it would be eggs-ellent if you could.

Thank you.

We’d also love any local schools/nurseries to get in touch to suggest they benefit from this appeal. We have a number of local schools on our database (from the recent free seeds giveaway, for instance) but invite anyone to suggest a school/nursery where the kids are currently still at school. Feel free to nominate a school/nursery or TAG a representative and invite them to get in touch. Thank you.
