Schoolchildren in Bingham were treated to a VIP visit last week (20 April) as a thank you for taking part in The Big Birdhouse Tour at intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh.
Pupils at Robert Miles Infant School were invited to get involved with the tour by decorating paper birds which are currently flying high as part of three giant mobiles hanging at the centres – and to thank them, marketing co-ordinator for both centres, Kate Hissett dropped in to tell them more about the tour.
She said: “Robert Miles Infant School was one of those that helped us to mark the arrival of The Big Birdhouse Tour in Nottingham and we wanted to give the children the opportunity to learn a bit more about why we are hosting the tour at our centres.
“We really enjoyed going into assembly and talking to the pupils about the work the RSPB does and how important it is to look after our environment.”
intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh have given nature a home and are exhibiting larger than life birdhouses, each individually and artfully designed by well-known British personalities to raise money for and awareness of the RSPB, Europe’s largest nature conservation charity.
Celebrities including Nottingham’s own Paralympic champion Richard Whitehead, Steve Backshall, George Clark, Becky Adlington, Jo Whiley and Vic Reeves have contributed their designs to the fun, interactive and informative tour.
The first national tour created exclusively by intu began in July, touring 15 intu centres, and will be in Nottingham until 30 April.
