MATRAVERS School has received a donation of £1,700 from Westbury Lions – the single largest donation made by the club in recent times.
The money will provide a set of C-Pen Readers to enable extra support for students with special educational needs and dyslexia.
Matravers School has long-established links with the Westbury Lions. The Lions Club support the Westbury and surrounding family of schools concert each year and provide donations to each school.
Matravers School was also unique in establishing its own Leos Club who follow in the footsteps of its founding organisation.
“We are delighted and honoured to have received such a wonderful donation from the Lions,” said the school. “This will potentially make a huge difference to pupils at the school.”
Nigel Coward, President of Westbury Lions Club said, “At a time when Matravers is embarking on a scheme to develop the campus to a world-class standard, we in the community must pull together to ensure the school has the best tools in place to support the students, and help them prepare for their higher education and life in the workplace.
“Local businesses and charities should aim to contribute what they can to the ongoing development of the school, as investment in the children of Westbury is ultimately an investment in the future of Westbury.
“Through this donation we have been able to target a key area of need in the school. The C-Pens are superb tools and have already been put to excellent use by the pupils. For Westbury Lions, this is the largest donations made by the club in recent times and so we are especially proud to see our contribution delivering an immediate benefit to a very deserving cause.”
