A school which is looking to transform its playground into a sensory playground has been awarded £2,000 from two organisations to make this dream come true.

Warren School in Lowestoft, which caters for children with complex needs and learning difficulties has received donations from East Coast Community Healthcare (ECCH) and Persimmon Homes.

ECCH has donated £1,000 after the school was nominated by staff.

Persimmon Homes selected Warren School to receive £1,000 funding through its Building Futures scheme.

The school has been fundraising for the playground but this was difficult during the pandemic when fundraising efforts were limited.
