This morning I was invited to Porthleven School to help unveil the new children’s playground. This is a fantastic addition to the school. What is really impressive, is all this money came from fundraising led by the school’s PTA. The fundraising started in September 2011 and in a short period the PTA raised nearly £12,000, with £9,000 of that money being spent on the play equipment.
This money came from businesses in Porthleven including £2000 from the Harbour and Dock Company, Porthleven’s Surf Club – £1,000, my Cornwall Councillor fund – £500, with the rest coming from fundraising activities. It is great to see such a strong and dynamic PTA who are always coming up with new and ‘interesting’ ways of fund-raising for the school.
Porthleven’s PTA can be rightly proud of their achievements, and with the team they have, nothing will stop them from making the school better for the children and families. Well Done!
