Blackburn Rovers Community Trust have chipped in to replace a range of vital school equipment that had been damaged or destroyed via a recent spate of vandalism.

Lower Darwen Primary School on Milking Lane has been targeted by mindless trespassers in recent months, with a number of their outdoor facilities either broken or strewn with paint, placing them beyond repair.
 
Having heard about the sad situation, our official club charity offered to step in and donate £500 of new equipment to the cause, meaning that the primary school could replace several bicycles, scooters, hula hoops and portable goals.
 
Amy Taylor, head of primary school education at the Community Trust, explained: "Nobody likes to hear that our local schools are under threat from mindless behaviour, so when we heard the extent of the problems that Lower Darwen Primary School has been facing on a repeat basis, we were keen to step in and help do something about it.
 
"It's only a small gesture towards replacing the overall value of the damage to fixtures, fittings and equipment, but we hope that the quality of the goods that we've been able to help secure will serve the school well for many years to come.
 
"We're sure that the children will enjoy the many fun items that we've been able to offer them and hope that they'll see an end to their problems with trespassing and vandalism now that it has been brought into the open via the local media."
 
If any local primary schools are looking to enhance their classroom and PE delivery with an exciting range of curriculum additions courtesy of the Community Trust's projects such as Premier League Primary Stars or Joy Of Moving, please email amy.taylor@brfctrust.co.uk or call 01254 508256 for more details.
