Amanda Best, chair of Friends of St Anne's, said:
"We are extremely grateful and overwhelmed for the support we received and wish to thank everyone who voted for us.
"This grant will enable us to provide much needed equipment and activities for the students at the school."
St Anne’s is a community special day school, based in Welton, East Yorkshire, with residential provision, catering for two to 19-year-olds. We provide a quality, inclusive education for pupils with severe learning difficulties and those with profound and multiple needs.
The Friends and Parents Committee is a small charity constitution, registered charity number 201794 that was started in September 2011 by a few parents of the school. Our purpose is to raise funds to provide education, equipment, recreational and leisure time opportunities for the children. We work alongside the school to ensure the children and young people access opportunities and take part in off-site activities to promote inclusion, well-being and being involved within the local community.
