Two Years of Fundraising for Norris Bank School

We are excited to share over the past 2 years we have been raising money, through sale of properties around the local area, for Norris Bank Primary School for them to put towards a state of the art projector. If any of our vendors were parents, staff and affiliates of Norris Bank Primary School, then we have donated 5% of our commission.

Enjoy Kids!
