There was a real treat in store for youngsters at a Luton school thanks to generous supermarket shoppers.

Sainsbury’s in Bury Park, Luton, is supporting Happy Days children’s charity this year, and donations from customers enabled Bamboozle Theatre company to visit Lady Zia Wernher School last Wednesday.

Kay Bolton, the school’s drama specialist, said: “Moon Song is an interactive sensory production designed to enchant and engage, and it definitely succeeded here.

“Some children at our school find it difficult to engage with performances, but today they were all captivated.

“A few of the staff said they had tears in their eyes just watching how responsive and animated the children became.

Rob Cox at Happy Days said: “We are delighted to be able to give another local school this very special experience, thanks to the help of Sainsbury’s.

“It is a great example of how local businesses are getting involved with Happy Days to make a real difference to children and families.”

Ian Shannon, manager at Sainsbury’s in Bury Park said: “It is an absolute pleasure to see what a difference our customer donations to our local charity of the year make to the children who live in our local community.

“We would like to thank our customers who have been giving so generously to Happy Days.”
