£25k mini bus donated to school
12:40pm Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
A NEW £25,000 mini bus has been donated to Great Marlow School.
Great Marlow sold some of its playing fields to Taylor Wimpey for its new Cliveden Grange housing development, located adjacent to the Bobmore Lane school.
The money helped create the new £4million state-of-the-art Sir Steve Redgrave sports centre, which opened earlier this year.
Deputy headteacher Kevin Ford said: "The donation of the minibus is the icing on the cake.
"There are an extensive number of sports clubs at the school who will use it to travel to matches, tournaments and competitions, including our rowing programme in which 150 students compete regularly, as well as in the traditional sports such as rugby, netball, football, athletics and cricket."
