To mark National Honey Bee Day on Saturday 20th August, primary schools across Nottingham have the chance to win £500 worth of gardening supplies in a competition run by The Cornerhouse.
The leading entertainment complex, which has its own collection of beehives on the third floor of the Drum, has already managed to raise over £1,000 for the national learning disabilities charity Mencap, through the sales of their homemade jars of honey.
Parents across Nottingham can nominate their chosen school by clicking the link in this post (scroll down) where respondents will be asked to say why their chosen school deserves to win.
Centre manager of The Cornerhouse, Suzanne Green, said:
“We are very excited to be supporting schools across Nottingham in our National Honey Bee Day competition. The importance of healthy eating and sustainable living should be at the forefront of the national curriculum, with gardening playing a key role in this.
“This equipment will help one lucky school to achieve its school gardening incentives and help promote the importance of green living in their community. I wish the very best of luck to all entrants!”
The Cornerhouse also has its own outdoor vegetable patch, with annual donations of fresh vegetables being given to Emmanuel House, a charity that supports homeless and vulnerable adults.
The school with the most nominations by Tuesday 20th September will receive the £500 of gardening equipment.
