HARDEN Primary School has received a £1,000 donation for playground improvements.

The money has been given to the school’s Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) by Skipton Properties.

Each month the developer is giving away £1,000 to a good cause in areas where it is building.

Jenny Hird, chairman of the PTFA, said: “We’re over the moon to receive this generous donation.

“School funding is at an all-time low, so donations like this really make a difference and provide much-needed extra money to be spent on things that benefit both pupils and staff.”

Skipton Properties managing director, Sarah Barraclough, said the company was “delighted” to be able to help the school.

“It’s no secret that most schools are financially over-stretched so committees like Harden PTFA make a huge difference,” she added. “We hope the pupils enjoy the playground improvements.”
