The Head Teachers of all ten schools were also presented with a donation from the Trust towards the schools’ library provisions. For 2019, the Trust was able to boost the donations for the larger primary schools proportionately, with a total value of £2900, thanks to an unexpected donation from the Penventon Park Hotel (read more).

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the money that you donated to school once again this year.  As a school we are very grateful for the money that we are able to spend on our school library.  It remains very important to us that our children have access to quality reading and leisure materials and we will be spending the money that you gave this year on story bags for our children to explore.
