Pupils with severe learning difficulties at Morecambe Road Day School in Morecambe could soon have a new state-of-the-art sensory area thanks to a £1,000 donation from the Barratt Legacy programme.
Barratt Homes Manchester Division is in the process of creating a development at the Luneside West site – now known as Riverside View.
When the school approached the housebuilder for help, it had no hesitation in putting the Barratt Legacy programme into action.
Barratt Manchester sales manager Graeme Gibb said: “When we heard about the plans for a sensory room and how it would bring great benefits to pupils with severe learning difficulties, we knew we had to support the project.
This donation will help make a huge difference to children’s lives for years to come by giving them access to a key method of ongoing therapy.”
Sensory rooms are now seen as a critical tool in the education of those with learningdifficulties. They also help those facing such challenges engage more with the worldaround them.
The Barratt Legacy programme is run by Barratt Manchester in order to bring lasting benefits to the communities in which the firm builds new developments.
Morecambe Road head Paul Edmonson said: “We are hugely grateful to Barratt Legacy for this generous donation.”
