£10,000 donation will build new play area
PARK Lane Special School will be getting a fantastic outdoor play area thanks to a generous donation from a supermarket.
Morrisons in Poynton has donated £9,995 to the Macclesfield school which provides education and support for children with severe and complex disabilities.
The donation was granted following an application by the Friends of Park Lane Special School, a charity set up to support the school.
The Friends successfully applied for a grant through the Morrisons Foundation, which was set up last year to provide financial support to registered charities across the UK.
The money will help to create a new outdoor area for young people with disabilities and will help to encourage positive play and develop motor skills.
Mari Hemsley, who is the manager of the Poynton branch of Morrisons, handed over a £9,955 donation which will enable the school to do the work.
David Scott, trustee of the Morrisons Foundation, said: “The Morrisons Foundation provides support to charities making a difference to people in our communities.
“This donation will help Friends of Park Lane Special School support people in the area.”
