A village school is appealing for help to raise money for a multi-use climbing frame and leisure area to replace play equipment that has been removed as it had become a safety hazard.
Burton Agnes school pupils, staff, parents and friends are currently fundraising to replace and rebuild the old climbing frame which has seen many years of service on the school field.
Leanne Brewis who is the Chair of the Charity Team at the school said: “We have been raising money all year and the latest fundraiser, which was a two-mile sponsored walk around the grounds of nearby Burton Agnes Hall, had a fantastic outcome.”
“The children gathered sponsorship and raised £1,400 towards the funds. We have also completed other fundraising events and the children have worked so hard and we are so excited about the amount raised.” added Leanne
“Also, what is really important is that Burton Agnes Hall are such fantastic support in all of the things we do, and very kindly welcomed the children on the 2-mile walk around the hall grounds. We use the Hall and grounds for many school-related events and they really are supportive and we would like to thank the owners and staff as we couldn’t do a lot of the events without them.” said Leanne
The total cost of the new playground is£13,000 the school playground fund stands at just under £10,000. Anybody who can help with the final fundraising push are asked to contact the school on 01262-490320.
