A school that provides specialist education for 114 pupils, aged from three to 19 years, is the latest organisation to benefit from a donation, courtesy of St Neots Round Table.

A cheque for £1,000 has been handed over to the Pepys Road School as part of the Round Table’s cash grant give-away.

The money is a share of £12,000 from the organisation’s Santa Sleigh collection, held in December last year, and a gin festival, which took place last October.

Headteacher of the school, Joanne Hardwick, and PTSA volunteer, Kat Coy, joined the Round Table’s Richard La Roche at Black Cat 107 breakfast show where the cash was handed over.

Presenter Ste Greenall said: “Samuel Pepys School is the seventh organisation in the town to benefit from the Round Table’s generosity. We really enjoy working with them on this initiative.”
