Three schools benefitted from £1,000 as part of a competition to design a News Shopper front page.
Numerous schools entered, both public and private, to receive the top prize of £500 on the theme of community issues at Petts Wood Pharmacy along Queensway yesterday (July 16).
Bromley’s Burnt Ash Primary, in Rangefield Road, were victorious with Year 4 pupil Davina Ngenegbo’s story on Brook Lane’s community garden.
Headteacher Leah Crawley explained the money would be re-invested into the community garden.
One of the runners-up was Orpington’s Holy Innocents School, which received £250. Five pupils worked together on the front page which was based on their fundraising over the last two years.
Headteacher Ryan Langford added the money would go towards new playground equipment for the school.
The second runner up was Orpington’s Crofton Academy, which also received £250.
The prize money was donated by Gulraj Dhillon, owner of Petts Wood Pharmacy.
Mr Dhillon said: "We run a community award to give something back, it was great to see the children here today."
