A Sherwood Primary School student was the 5000th child on board Billy Branston’s Amazing Potato Factory.Advertisement
The double decker bus which was launched in September 2014 is an initiative designed to teach schoolchildren about where their food comes from. Branston began the scheme, which supports Tesco’s Eat Happy Project, and it came to the Fulwood primary school this week.
The bus has been designed to create a hands-on learning classroom environment with a bunch of activities to learn from and be a part of including what happens in a real potato factory.
Sherwood Primary Schools head teacher David Fann said, ““Our pupils have thoroughly enjoyed their visit from Billy Branstonʼs Amazing Potato Factory, and have not stopped talking about it! The activities on board have been brilliant, and the whole experience has far exceeded our expectations. Itʼs an added bonus that one of our pupils has helped initiative reach a massive milestone of 5,000 visitors.”
James Truscott, Sales and Marketing Director at Branston, said, “Weʼre keen to get the message out there about how great potatoes are and how theyʼre really key for a healthy balanced diet, and Billy Branstonʼs Potato Factory has been a huge success so far. When we first put the tour on the road, we had no idea how well received it would be and weʼre thrilled to be welcoming the 5,000th child on board the bus in Preston.”
