A NEW soft play facility was being unveiled at Prospect Bank School today thanks to a £5000 charity grant.
The Lord’s Taverners, the official charity of recreational cricket, donated the cash to the school, in Restalrig Road, which caters for primary-age pupils with complex, long-term support needs.
The new facility is designed to provide pupils with the opportunity to explore and develop their senses and communication skills through physical activity.
Matthew Patten, chief executive of the charity, said: “The Lord’s Taverners believes that sport and recreation is essential for all young people, regardless of ability.
“This new playground equipment will enable the pupils to enjoy new experiences and enhance their learning. We are delighted to be able to support the staff, parents and pupils of Prospect Bank School.”
