Pupils and staff from Bright Futures school in Greenfield are taking part in the Great British Spring Clean, and they are hoping to raise much-needed funds for a new outdoor sensory gym at their school during a sponsored local clean-up.
The Greenfield-based independent school for children with autism with a low stimulus environment and a high level of 1-1 teaching, moved into new premises last year and already have regular litter-picking as part of their environmental education sessions.
Learning mentor at Bright Futures Brian Banawich said: "The pupils enjoy litter-picking and learning what happens to litter once it is recycled.
"They've decided to do a sponsored litter pick on June 9 as part of Great British Spring Clean and to help raise money for a new outdoor sensory gym at the school.
"Sensory gyms have been proven to help with fine motor skills, body awareness, increased social skills as well as improve muscle strength, coordination, and balance."
If anyone would like to sponsor the clean up or donate to helping fund a new outdoor sensory gym at Bright Futures School they can find the 'GoFundMe' link here
