The whole community came together to help St Luke's school fund their solar roof.

Over 20 months, St Luke's raised more than £13,000 in donations from parents, former pupils, businesses and local well-wishers.

The school's solar panels will bring in over £2,000 per year for the next 20 years. And that'll pay for school trips and better playground equipment.

"We have never seen the students so enthusiastic about a project before - it's been surprising and incredible!"

- Stella Pentecost, parent.

With school budgets stretched, the solar savings gained by St Luke's have provided a much needed boost - all thanks to the involvement of the local community.
