The Friends of St Charles committee recently put in an application to the Spennymoor AAP It’s Up 2 U Community Grant Fund Event. This was to obtain funding for a project in our school.

We have a fantastic sports area on the school entrance yard which has different sport courts and a running lane marked out, with an abundance of brand new sports equipment for the children to use BUT the area was not safe or secure. The Friends of St Charles were hoping to receive funding so they could fence the area off making it a safe environment for the children to use during PE lessons and lunchtime play.

We are incredibly proud to announce that the Friends of St Charles were successful in their bid, and have secured the £5000 to fund their project at school.

A big thank you goes out to all those who put the bid together, made the fantastic display, manned the stall at the event, and went down and voted! We can’t thank you all enough.  It is fantastic news and will bring more opportunities for the pupils in our school, and the local community.
