The Wilko store on Winfrey Avenue, Spalding has transformed local children into tiny twitchers, after recently donating a host of wild bird products to Gosberton House School.

Team members from the Wilko store made a special trip to the school, located on Westhorpe Road, to speak to the children about their wild bird campaign and to donate a selection of goodies, including wild bird seed and feeders.

The donation was made by Wilko with the aim of encouraging school children to protect wildlife within their own playgrounds and gardens at home.

Lloyd Nicholls, Wilko store manager, said: “I think it’s really important to educate children on the importance of protecting and looking after our wildlife.

“In particular, the wonderful array of wild birds our country has to offer.

“We chose to donate the products to Gosberton House School as a team, and we know they will do a brilliant job in making sure our feathered friends will be well fed.

“Our wild bird campaign is all about getting people from across the community to start thinking more about the surrounding wildlife and what they can do to care for it.

“During these chillier months, it’s more important than ever to help birds get the nutritious, high-fat food they need.

“Wilko sells a full range of products to help people look after wildlife in their gardens and it was great to be able to share this with local school children too and show them how they can help.”
