Grantham Additional Needs Federation (GANF) won a £1,000 donation which will go towards exercise equipment for pupils with disabilities.
The federation, which runs Ambergate Sports College and Sandon School, won the ‘A Grand Idea’ competition run by Ringrose Law, which donated £1,000 to six worthy causes.
GANF supports children from age three to 19 with complex needs such as autism, ADHD and learning difficulties.
Vice-president James Ellis said: “We are absolutely thrilled to receive this money from ‘A Grand Idea’. At GANF, we want to offer those with complex needs the chance to keep fit at the same time.
“We are trying to raise £10,000 to refurbish a disused space and transform it into a gym. This £1,000 has given us a fantastic start to our fund-raising campaign.”
Ringrose Law marketing manager Alex Gray said: “We had some fantastic entries from Grantham and the surrounding villages. After shortlisting the top five projects, we opened up a public vote which was really neck and neck until the last second!
“We are delighted that GANF has won and hope that this provides them with the kickstart they need for their fund-raising.”
‘A Grand Idea’ will be returning in 2014. Any community project or charity can send in an application by going to www.ringrose.co.uk/agrandidea for more information.
