We are hugely grateful to the residents of Cotterill Road who have donated money they raised at their Platinum Jubilee Street Party to our project to build a sensory garden. The street raised a fantastic sum of £1310 which will be put towards creating a new interactive space that can be enjoyed by the pupils at the school.
Leigh Edser, principal of Dysart School, said: “We are extremely grateful to the residents of Cotterill Road for this generous donation which we will use to create a sensory area that will help stimulate pupils of all ages.”
The residents who renamed their Road CotteRoyal for the day and used a special CotteRoyal Pound to buy refreshments are pleased that the money they raised is being put to good use.
“It is so nice to see the children at the school and visit the area they would like to develop into a sensory garden. We will look forward to coming back to see it when it is completed,” said Ida Magnusson, who was one of the organisers of the event.
