Ladysmith Junior School voted as Community Fund winner

Exeter's Ladysmith Junior School has been voted as the latest winner of our Well Built Community Fund and now has £1,000 to spend on tools and building materials at RGB Exeter.  

The school received the most votes following a public poll where it was up against Sidmouth Amateur Radio Society and the UK Wild Otter Trust in Umberleigh.

Ladysmith Junior School has been gifted a Plymouth City Bus, which it's planning to transform into a useable area for children to sit and have quite reading time during breaks, and for teachers to use with smaller groups outside of the traditional classroom setting.

Mark Wilkinson, Headteacher at Ladysmith Junior School, commented:

"Our talented Site Manager Andy Hawkins will be taking on the majority of the work, so we'll be using the money to purchase new tools, in particular a belt sander and table saw, for him to use, and also some materials needed for the project.

"It's an amazing opportunity for us to create something unique for our pupils, and I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us. Thank you also to RGB for the generous donation."

Paul West, Branch Manager at RGB Exeter, visited the school to see the bus and meet some of the pupils who will be using it. He added:

"Well done to Ladysmith Junior School; I was delighted to visit and learn more about how the donation will be used. I wish them every success with the reading bus project and look forward to returning to see the transformation."
