Schools that wish to take part in our Sports for Schools campaign can still register.

Sports for Schools is a competition which involves schools and communities collecting tokens for a chance to win a share of a £20,000 sports kit cash pot.

From Monday, February 5, until April, special tokens will be printed in every edition of our newspaper - parents, school staff and the local community can collect and donate them to a school.

The top three schools with the most tokens - calculated on a pro rata basis based on pupil numbers - will receive prizes of £5,000, £3,000 or £2,000, while schools which collect 1,000 tokens will receive a free sports pack which is worth over £60.

To get involved simply send the school name, address, postcode and telephone number as well as a contact name, and the number of pupils at the school here.
