Proud to Sponsor Barney & Echo – Sprinkles & Toppers Ltd

Proud to Sponsor Barney & Echo

We were recently contacted by the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain offering us the chance to sponsor a wonderful ongoing project to get valuable citizenship resources into Schools for children aged 7-11.

We support a lot of larger charities through the products we sell via our Ebay store so to be given the chance to support such a local cause was fantastic!

This project is only possible via private Sponsorship. We are so happy to announce our first batch of sponsored books will be in our local Primary School just after February half term.

This story deals with the issue of anti-social behaviour. 
The Bad Apples... 
Anti-social behaviour blights the lives of communities who live in fear of problems caused by bored gangs of youths, typically drinking and causing vandalism. 
The Bad Apples looks to prepare children at an early age to understand the impact anti-social behaviour can have on themselves, their peers and the wider community. The book promotes discussion on a range of issues including, loud and aggressive behaviour, bullying, stealing, littering and vandalism. The book aims to help children deal with peer pressure and encourages them to respect others. 
In The Bad Apples, Barney has to help Echo and his friends when two foxes move into the forest from the city. The foxes are rude and disrespectful which affects all the animals and the wider community. Barney teaches the foxes a lesson by showing them the consequences of their actions and helps them to put things right. 
The book is punctuated by activities that develop the learning objectives for the children. 
The Bad Apples is a fun and interactive support to children’s citizenship education in primary schools. 

We have signed up for future sponsorship and are looking forward to help promote such a great project.
