Westhaven School teaches pupils who have a with a range of learning difficulties or physical disabilities.

But unlike other secondary schools, it does not have a dedicated sports hall, and some PE lessons, such as cycling (pictured) take place in a converted boiler room.

The Mercury is supporting its appeal to build a new hall for PE in its grounds in Ellesmere Road.

Individual donations have now gone beyond £1,000, while Jason Stitch and his family have raised £1,240 from collections at Cadbury Garden Centre and Tesco in Burnham ahead of his cycle ride from Land’s End to Westhaven.

The school has also teamed up with Towens to launch a fundraising golf day in September.

The students will be helping out on the day by being a caddy.

PE teacher Tommy Barlow said: “The purpose of this event is to raise money for a new sports hall for our extraordinary young people who deserve the very best.

“The students are very excited to help out on this day and will be involved when introducing each team at the start, selling raffle tickets in the club house and helping to cook the bacon rolls at the half way point.”

The event will be held at Weston Golf Club on September 29 at 9.30am. Entry is priced £160 for teams of four.

To enter, contact Mr Barlow on 01934 632171 to get an application form.
