Portishead Rotary Club has donated almost £350 to support children’s learning during lockdown.

The charity gave funds to Inspire Creativity Workshops to help Trinity School in Portishead assist children finding difficulties with distance learning during the pandemic.

Jacqui Heber produces learning packs for children at the school, and was presented with a £345 donation from Portishead Rotary to support the initiative.

Trinity Primary learning mentor
Claire Taylor said: “During this difficult time, the impact for some children
receiving the creative packs has been invaluable, not only for their well being and self-esteem but for the additional learning attached to the
activity.”

The Rotary club is welcome to new members.
