A centre offering outdoor education for all ages and abilities has received a £20,000 grant from the Lodge of the Three Graces, No. 408, Province of Yorkshire, West Riding.
Nell Bank, in Ilkley, is akin to a small village, providing outdoor day and residential education to many local schools and community groups. Some 20,000 children benefit annually from the facilities, but there is an urgent need to replace the present adventure playground with an area that better accommodates children with special needs, as well as wet weather.
The £20,000 grant donated by the lodge will assist with the cost of providing a new play area.
