T-shirt gifts for sporty kids
MOFFAT Primary school pupils received self-portrait t-shirts for taking part in free sports sessions.
Community Windpower and Dumfries based community interest group, Let’s Get Sporty, delivered the sessions once a week for five weeks to Sanquhar Primary, Kelloholm Primary, Moffat Primary and Lockerbie Primary.
In total, 320 hours of free physical activity and learning was provided to over 1000 pupils, with the lessons including building knowledge around improving health and wellbeing while simultaneously increasing awareness about the community and environmental benefits of green energy.
Managing director at Let’s Get Sporty David Bradbury said: “Working together with Community Windpower we have been able to boost the health and wellbeing of children in Moffat Community.
“It has been an excellent opportunity to simultaneously build knowledge around renewable energy while exercising, incorporating sport and learning together.”
The children were also presented with bespoke class self-portrait t-shirts for taking part in the project, printed by Sanquhar based embroidery company, Nith Valley Embroidery and paid for by Community Windpower.
Community Windpower is the developer for the proposed Scoop Hill windfarm, which would be located 5km southeast of Moffat and would be capable of powering 572,000 homes per year.
Owner of the embroidery company Nan McKenzie said: “The last two years have been difficult with the pandemic, and it has been tough as a small business.
“We are very grateful for the order from Community Windpower as it has really helped the business during these trying times.”
