Fund raising total climbing high as school purchases new play equipment

10:00 29 July 2014

A new climbing frame is set to be installed at a village school after £10,000 was raised by generous parents.

Melbourn Primary School Parents, Teachers and Friends’ Association has been collecting funds to provide new play equipment for children at the school.

As a result of their hard work, £10,000 had been raised by the end of the school year, meaning the new climbing frame for the school’s Key Stage One pupils can be purchased.

PTFA Chair Sian Bolitho said, “Events like May’s Spring Fayre and our annual firework display have really delivered. The support we get from our parents and friends has been outstanding and this means that we can afford a wonderful climbing facility to keep the kids active during their break times.

“Our next target is to provide an exciting piece of climbing equipment for KS2 to give our older children something challenging at break time”.

It is hoped the new climbing frame will be in use early next term.
