At Maped Helix we think that everyone should have their school essentials to help them perform to their highest ability in the classroom, which is why when we heard about Community Toy Bank and Beyond in Glasgow launching its first ever Back to School collection, we were more than happy to help out!

We sent 175 filled pencils to the Community Toy Bank and Beyond team, 140 have already been donated to kids from Greater Glasgow and the others will soon follow suit.

John Beattie, organiser of the initiative, said: “We launched a Back To School campaign to ensure less fortunate school children across the West of Scotland had pencil cases and stationery for going back to school after the holiday period. Maped Helix saw our campaign and donated an incredible 175 pencil cases with stationery to our project. The joy on the faces of the children that received these pencil cases was wonderful. It was such a fantastic gesture by the Maped Helix team and we can't thank them enough for their support. The staff who have been in contact with us are a credit to their company.”

We hope every single child who received a pencil case now feels ready to start the new school term in style.

From everyone here at Maped Helix – good luck and enjoy!
