Hesketh Bank school is celebrating a £1,000 windfall towards its reading books scheme.
All Saints CE Primary School was selected by Persimmon Homes to receive the funding as part of the Community Champions initiative.
The national match-funding scheme seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment across the region.
Diane Finch, sales and marketing director at Persimmon Homes Lancashire, said: “The Friends of All Saints have been hard at work fundraising to purchase new reading books for every child in Key Stage 1. That’s 300 children who will be able to share the love of reading, so we are delighted to support their project.”
Set in the village of Hesketh Bank, All Saints School is very much part of the local community, with strong links to the church from which it takes its name. The friends of the school organise a wide range of activities to enhance the students’ experience. Recent donations have helped to provide playground equipment and arts and crafts materials. More information about the school can be found at www.allsaintshwb.co.uk
Community Champions invites local groups and charities to bid for cash, with two donations of up to £1,000 being made locally each month.
Persimmon has also recently launched a further funding programme – Building Futures – which focuses on support for people aged under 18 in the categories of sport, education and health.
