School children in Redditch had lots of fun at their Christmas Fayre thanks to the generosity of a family-run business. 

Oakland International, a supply chain solutions provider, once again kindly sponsored Beoley First School's Christmas Carousel. 

The company, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary based in Beoley, has formed many strong community links over the years. 

This is especially through its children's charity, the Oakland Foundation, which supports a range of educational and community initiatives around the local area and beyond. 

Headteacher at Beoley First School, Ben Irving, said: "Our Christmas Fayre is such an important event for us as it brings our community together in such a meaningful way. 

"In recent years, the carousel has become a firm favourite adding to the festive atmosphere. We are enormously grateful to Oakland International for their generous sponsorship and continued support."

Executive Assistant at Oakland International, Jane Thompson, said: "It was wonderful to be invited to share in all the Christmas fun with the children, staff and parents. 

"We were delighted to offer our support as Christmas is such a wonderful time for giving and as a local family business maintaining our commitment to our local community is important to us. 

"Thank you, Beoley First School, for inviting us to join you in your celebrations."
