DISABLED school children will be enjoying a lot more trips out thanks to the kindhearted donation of a town firm.

Staff at Springwell Primary School, in Hartlepool’s Wiltshire Way, have been limited in how many of the school’s younger children they take out at a time because they only had one double pushchair.

But that number has now been trebled after the generous intervention of Young Ones, the York Road store stocking all of the much-needed items for children and parents.

The store handed two double pushchairs over to the school, to the sheer delight of staff.

Karl Telfer, Springwell’s headteacher, said: “This donation is a huge boost for us, and extremely kind.

“We only ever had one double pushchair so we have always been extremely limited on what we do.

“But now we will be able to take more children out on visits, which is obviously going to benefit them.

“We do have more younger children in school with disabilities and when we only had one pushchair it was becoming very difficult to take them out on visits. We are so grateful to Anthony Young at Young Ones for this donation.”

Springwell Primary School has featured in the Mail on a number of occasions after being the beneficiary of kind donations.

Mr Telfer said he is always amazed by the generosity of people in Hartlepool.

“People in Hartlepool are just phenomenal,” he added.

“Whenever we need anything for the children they are straight there supporting us.

“It makes it so much easier for the school and the children obviously benefit no-end.”

Anthony Young, 37, who lives in the Rift House area of Hartlepool and owns Young Ones, said: “It’s good to know we have made a difference.

“The staff in school were delighted and more of the children will be able to go out on visits now, which is brilliant.”
