Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

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.”
