Raise the roof by donating

Alfreton Park Community Special School’s Let’s Raise the Roof campaign has been boosted with generous gifts.

At a Chinese New Year assembly on Monday, January 23, Roger Stevenson from Alfreton Rotary Club, presented the school with £1,000 from a collection by club members outside Tesco in the town on December 17, last year.

On Friday January 20, Diane Dyer, personnel manager at Tesco presented a cheque to the school when pupils from Classes 1 and 3 went to the store to collect £500.

In December, Alfreton Swimming Club presented the school with a cheque for £250 and another £250 was received from local business Chromalloy UK Ltd who raised money with their Christmas raffle.

The Raise the Roof Campaign was launched last year to raise £200,000 for a new swimming pool building at the school. With the latest donations, the current total now stands at £13,400.
