The Willoughby Foundation receives donation from Lincolnshire-based Barratt and David Wilson Homes





A charity which supports children with special educational needs has received a donation from a housebuilder.

The Bourne-based Willoughby Foundation has been given £3,000 from Lincolnshire-based Barratt and David Wilson Homes.

The charity is the fundraising arm of Willoughby Academy, a special school for pupils aged two to 19 with a diverse range of needs.

With more than 140 pupils currently enrolled, The Willoughby Foundation’s main aim is to raise funds to provide additional services that the school budget can’t cover.

David Tebbutt, treasurer at The Willoughby Foundation, said: “We strive to make all pupils’ time with us as enjoyable as possible, and donations like this make that a reality.

“When we found out we had been chosen to receive £3,000 we were delighted.

“One of the projects we have been planning for a while is the development of an additional outdoor area for the pupils to enjoy.

“This fantastic donation will directly go towards fulfilling that plan.”
