What better outcome from a football match between Greenhous and Salop Leisure staff could there be than to hand over a cheque for £1,077 to the grateful Friends of Severndale School.  The match was played on the Greenhous Meadow pitch, home of Shrewsbury Town FC and in front of a good sized, appreciative crowd.  The money was raised by both teams and thanks also to a raffle on the day.

Speaking at the cheque presentation at Severndale School, Jayne Parry, chair of the Friends of Severndale and also a teaching assistant, expressed her delight with the receipt of the cheque. “We are always looking to provide improved facilities for the children” said Jayne “and this money will be put towards our plans for outside play areas.

“It is a fact that with special education the costs are much higher to provide the sort of facilities the children are entitled to, hence we are grateful to any donations from the public or businesses.  On behalf of the school and the staff and children we thank Salop Leisure and Greenhous very much.”
