Shoppers support Pool Academy

Tesco has chosen Pool Academy as one of their most recent charities for the blue token collections.

The collection pot is for the academy and its Community Fitness Suite which is due to open this term.

The collection will be running until October 31st and school staff are urging shoppers to support them by dropping blue tokens in their slot.

Pool Academy currently has a sports hall, a dance studio, an outside Multi Use Games Area and tennis courts. It will soon have a new suite with treadmills, spinning bikes, TRX and body pump classes as well as a space for weight loss groups.

Alastair Durant, Pool Academy PE teacher, said: “We would love the local community to get behind us with the new fitness suite which will be used by our students and members of the local community.

“Please help to support us by popping your blue tokens into the collection point at Tesco.”

Phil Jones, Head of Academy Services, said: "The fitness suite will be a fantastic addition to our school's community resources. The well-being of the students at Pool Academy is crucially important to us and this will mean they are able to easily access state of the art fitness equipment on a regular basis. On top of that it will also be a great resource for the people of the Pool community."
