School is awarded £1,750 by a new grant

Pupils at Claires Court School in Maidenhead can get crafty thanks to a new grant.

Its art and craft club was awarded £1,750 from Heathrow's Community and Environment Awards, in partnership with Groundwork Thames Valley.

The new club, for nine to 18-year-olds, will launch during the Easter holidays with workshops including life drawing, felt making, and funky quilting.

Business manager Lynne Constantine said the grant has made an 'amazing difference'.

She said: "Our most important aim is to provide teenagers with a friendly inviting space where they can develop their artistic skills using quality materials provided by the grant."
