Pupils striving to be green travel heroes and brilliant bookworms will be in with the chance to meet the star of CBeebies’ Mister Maker.

That is the top prize of a competition being staged for schools signed up to schemes run by the KM Charity Team including Active Wow, Green Footsteps, and Buster’s Book Club.

Schools will encourage pupils to make an extra effort to walk to school and meet or exceed their home reading targets on the competition date of Wednesday, October 4.

The best or most improved classes for green travel and reading will be in the running to win a family ticket for the CBeebies Mister Maker and the Shapes Live tour in October. The prize includes a meet and greet with the star of the show Phil Gallagher.

Simon Dolby of the KM Charity Team said: “Phil is a huge hit with the children so it gives us great pleasure to offer this fantastic prize. I am sure all participating classes will try their hardest to be the ones to claim the top spot.”

Schools can find out more about Active Wow by contacting Sarah Clyne at or Charlotte Hayes at for enquiries about Buster’s Book Club.
