Votes sought to fund play equipment
12:33pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
A NURSERY is looking for votes to secure funding for new outdoor play facilities.
Bishop Auckland College Nursery has been short-listed for the Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2013 and, if successful, will be awarded £3,000 to purchase climbing equipment for its garden.
The fund is awarding grants to 1,300 local good causes in villages, towns and cities across England and Wales. There are four awards for each community, with two receiving £3,000 each, and two receiving £300.
The funding is awarded to applicants who secure the largest number of public votes, and more than 200,000 votes have already been cast nationally.
Voting for Bishop Auckland College Nursery is open until November 1 online at lloydsbank.com/communityfund or by texting VOTE KWHD to 61119.
Alice Hunter, senior early years practitioner at the nursery, said: “If we are successful the money will be used to purchase a large climbing frame with protected flooring for our nursery garden, which will allow the children in our care to have access to more physical and active play, and give them great pleasure.”
