School garden is great sense; SNOWBALL ANNIVERSARY.

EVERYTHING in the garden is wonderful for these pupils and staff at Sherbourne Fields Special school in Coventry (left) ... and Snowball has played a part in it.

The latest donation from Snowball was pounds 8,473 for interactive play features for the new sensory garden at the school.

Equipment given includes a sand and water table, drum set, loudspeakers, funky mirrors, chalk board and steel "sound fence".

David Southeard, head at Sherbourne Fields School, in Rowington Close, Coundon, said he was grateful to Snowball for funding various projects over the years and wished it well on its 21st anniversary.

Staff at Baginton Fields special school also experience at first hand what a difference the equipment Snowball provides can make to their pupils.

Whether it is a big grant to improve the school's facilities or a few pounds for a computer at home, Snowball donations are always gladly received.

Simon Grant, head teacher at Baginton Fields School in Sedgemoor Road, Willenhall, said the charity was a huge asset to the community.

He said: "I would say we put in applications to Snowball for computers and equipment for our pupils three to four times each year.

"Snowball has always been supportive of the school and families, they've provided pieces of individual equipment for students and are prepared to fund large projects.

"We've always found them to be very open to applications and flexible about who they will support."

The newest donations to individual pupils were pounds 1,800 for a stairlift to enable one of the students to have some independence at home, and pounds 625 for a trike for autistic teenager Luke Wilson (see story above).
