Beacon Ace Academy voted as Community Fund winner

Bodmin's Beacon Ace Academy has been voted as the latest winner of our Well Built Community Fund and will receive £1,000 to spend on timber and landscaping materials.

The school received the most votes following a public poll that began before the country went into lockdown. It was one of nine charities, schools and community focused groups we chose as finalists in the last Community Fund before

the initiative is refreshed and relaunched next year.  

To encourage outdoor learning and sustainability, the school developed a vegetable garden, which was unfortunately damaged by a storm at the beginning of the year. Once the current situation comes to an end and school life returns to normal, Beacon Ace Academy will use the donation to buy materials to make essential repairs to the growing areas.

Simon Rowe, Science Leader at Beacon Ace Academy and who nominated the school, commented:

"Pupils plant, grow, harvest and cook what is produced in the garden, so we hope we'll be able to get to work and make the repairs soon. Thank you to RGB Building Supplies and to everyone who voted for us."

Steve Best, Branch Manager at RGB Bodmin, is looking forward to being able to visit the school and learn more about what they have planned. He added:

"Normally we visit our Well Built Community Fund winners as soon as possible and give them advice on what materials to purchase for their project. That can't be done at the moment, but we're delighted to at least give them the good news that the public voted them as the winner, and I look forward to visiting once the school reopens."
