King's Lynn store backs school support programme
A new project at a West Norfolk school to help students with additional education needs has been helped by supermarket support.
The Special Education Needs (SEN) development project will help students with an array of life skills at St Clement’s High School in Terrington St Clement.
And staff at the Morrisons store in Lynn have helped out by offering an array of equipment to get the scheme off the ground.
Tania Hanks, the store's community champion, said she had been made aware of the scheme through her daughter, who works at the school which is a member of the West Norfolk Academies Trust (WNAT).
She said: “As a community champion it was my first link with St Clement’s and I very much look forward to working with them in the future.
“Morrisons believe in giving back to local schools and the wider community as well as supporting both national and local charities.”
The store supplied buckets, plates, bowls, tea towels, cooking utensils, dusters, lab-style disposable coats, hand gardening tools and an Aloe Vera plant to brighten up the area and so students could learn about plants and natural healing properties.
Carrie Chappell, WNAT's special needs co-ordinator for the trust, said: “We had asked staff if they could make any donations and then Tania got in touch to say that Morrisons would be able to help, which was fantastic news.
“We are working hard to create a new facility which will be a base for the delivery of the personal delivery programme and this donation will make a huge difference.”
