£7,000 boost shared by two local schools in Burnham-On-Sea area

Two local schools shared financial boosts of several thousand pounds on Friday (February 5th).

Brent Knoll Primary School and Lympsham School received donations from a regional 'Cash For Schools' competition run in conjunction with Barclays Bank.

A cheque for £2,000 was handed over to Brent Knoll School's Head Teacher Karen Davidson by MP David Heathcoat-Amory watched by dozens of cheering pupils, as pictured.

Miss Davidson told "The money will help us set up a new reading area at the school, with new books and a new bean bag. We're very grateful for the donation."

Lympsham School's Head Teacher Fiona Robertson received £5,000 to repair its aging toilet block. Mr Heathcoat-Amory met pupils and staff at both schools during his visits.
