SCHOOL pupils will be able to take cover at events thanks to a new shelter.

The shelter and picnic benches at Henry Cort Community College, in Fareham, were put in thanks to a donation from The William Price Charitable Trust, which partially funded the project.

Chris Thomas, clerk at the charity, visited the school and unveiled a plaque.

He said: ‘The trust gives approximately £150,000 per year to schools in Fareham.

‘It has been an absolute pleasure to see the students enjoying the new facility.’

Student Ellie Turner organised the initiative with the support of the student council and the shelter has already been used to hold a fundraising event for JDRF - the type 1 diabetes charity.

Phil Munday, executive principal, said: ‘The trust’s support has enabled us to get the project off the ground.’
