PUPILS at Chaucer Infant and Junior School are on their way to working outdoors on sunny days thanks to a cash donation from a county councillor.

Cllr Glennice Birkin presented children in year two with a cheque for £500 after the school council wrote a letter asking for financial help to pay for the shaded area.

Pupils plan to work and play outdoors on hot days.

The cheque, presented at a special assembly where children welcomed Cllr Birkin with songs, is from the Derbyshire County Council’s Community Leadership Scheme.
