We're going solar!

This blog post was written by Mary Shorland from E P Collier primary

In September we set ourselves a challenging fundraising target of £10,000 to allow us to install solar panels on the roof of our school. We’re very pleased to let you know that we’ve smashed our target and to do this just before Christmas is even better!

Taking this leap was always about engaging the community and the environmental and educational benefits of the Solar Schools project for our pupils. We’ve been amazed by the generosity of all our donors and thanks to the collective effort of the community, we’ve reached our target quicker than we could have expected. It’s been the most phenomenal morale boost for our school and community. A huge thank you to all those who took part.
