Friends of University Academy Holbeach are hoping to keep theOlympic torch burning with a donation to the school’s PE department.
The Friends handed over £2,012 – in honour of London 2012 – to be spent on buying new equipment for the academy’s new sports hall which is currently being built as part of a massive rebuild project.
The money had been raised through a variety of events, including quiz nights and school discos.
It will be spent on a variety of equipment aimed at encouraging youngsters to participate in a range of Olympic disciplines, such as gymastics.
The cheque was handed over by the Friends’ chairman Maurice Lane to head of PE Helen Stewart.
