An Ely school is making the most of a new trampoline thanks to a grant from a national charity.
Highfields was awarded a grant of £10,000 to buy the equipment thanks to the St James’s Place Foundation.
The funds bought the trampoline and will also pay to train a rebound therapist to work with the children.
Julie Sparrow, mortgage broker through St James’s Place, said: “Its so great to see the money raised through the Foundation being awarded to a local charity.”
Julie and her colleague Lorraine Morris have already successfully completed charity walks to raise money for the foundation and are taking on another walking challenge in May covering 35 miles in the Peak District and dales over two days.
The Foundation is the charitable arm of the St James’s Place Wealth Management Group.
They have been supporting those in need since 1992 by awarding grants to charities registered in the UK and have distributed more than £56 million to thousands of charities.
