Fast on the heels of the Wolfson Foundation awarding us £50K for the science laboratory refurbishment we have just received news that the Garfield Weston Foundation are giving us £40K towards the same project!
The refurbishment forms part of the £1.7M build programme with the laboratory replacing a history and an English room, which will be relocated to the new extension.
We are extremely grateful to both Foundations for their support – this virtually covers the cost of the laboratory refurbishment building work.
