Pupils at a primary school didn’t need to hold out the begging bowl to stage their production of Oliver!
Developer Redrow Homes were only too happy to help out by sponsoring the musical at St Blaise CofE Primary School at Milton Hill.
The housebuilder is keen to play an active role in the communities in which it operates.
Headteacher Ruth Leach said they were grateful to Redrow for its support.
Tonia Taylor, sales director for Redrow Homes (South Midlands) said: “We were pleased to be able to help support the school in encouraging the children to build their confidence by taking to the stage and wish them well with their fundraising run.”
