Ixworth Free School receives £1,000 towards extra equipment for new pitch
A property developer has donated £1,000 to a village school so it can buy additional equipment for an all weather pitch to be enjoyed by the whole community.
Persimmon handed a cheque to Ixworth Free School to buy items for its new facility, which opened just before Easter.
The all weather pitch is a joint venture between the school and Ixworth’s Jiggens Trust and was made possible following a £65,000 grant from charity Garfield Weston.
The pitch will be available for the village including Ixworth Primary School to use.
Mark Barrow, headteacher at Ixworth Free School, said: “We’re delighted a local property developer has chosen to award us the money. It isn’t just the school benefiting, it’s the village.”
