The funds will go towards supporting the youngest children in Marcham Primary School, as well as the pre-school, both of which have been open to key workers throughout the Covid-19 outbreak.

Marcham Primary headteacher Vic Hutchinson said: “"We have a great relationship with Marcham Pre-school and are delighted to be able to work well together on a whole range of projects and activities - to our mutual benefit.”
