By now I imagine you have all seen the amazing new castle in the Panda Class garden! I am very happy to announce that we are now the extremely happy and excited new owners of this equipment with huge thanks to The Big Lottery Fund who provided us with the funding for this, along with the special safety ground covering. We are all very keen to try it out – staff included! THANK YOU, THE BIG LOTTERY FUND The Big Lottery Fund is the largest funder of community activity in the UK. It puts people in the lead to improve their lives and communities, often through small, local projects. It is responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised by National Lottery players for good causes. Last year it awarded £583 million and supported around 12,000 projects across the UK for health, education, environment and charitable purposes. Since June 2004 it has awarded over £8 billion to projects that change the lives of millions of people.
