Labrums marketing manager, Steve Marshall, said: "The idea came about when I was talking to a colleague (who's sister is a teacher) and it was mentioned that schools are often short of balls to use for sport or other physical activities.

"People don't realise how deep the cuts to school funding are. Many schools have set up Amazon wish lists to crowd fund what would have previously been regarded as basic supplies. While teaching staff are under increased pressure to achieve performance targets."

The draw closes on June 16. Visit www.facebook.com/LabrumsSolicitors to enter.
