We are very excited to have been awarded a lottery grant to set up and develop forest school here at East Hunsbury Primary School. Over the coming year we hope to offer a range of opportunities to different groups within our school and our community. This term Reception are enjoying their morning sessions; and our afternoon sessions continue with children from throughout the school. Watch this space for news of what we have been up to!
Reception have been trying out our new waterproofs funded by the lottery grant. Great for the mud!
The Big Lottery Fund supports the aspirations of people who want to make life better for their communities across the UK. We are responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised by the National Lottery for good causes and invest over £650 million a year in projects big and small in health, education, environment and charitable purposes. Since June 2004 we have awarded over £8 billion to projects that make a difference to people and communities in need, from early years intervention to commemorative travel funding for World War Two veterans. Since the National Lottery began in 1994, £33 billion has been raised and more than 450,000 grants awarded.
