A primary school’s fundraising campaign to raise money for equipment in their new building got a welcome boost from Hartlepool’s Freemasons.

The charitable organisation gave the Seaton school £250 during their open day when visitors were invited to take one last look around the old building.

We are really looking forward to our new building which is fitting for the needs of a modern day school

Holy Trinity is moving to a new building in September and the current site in Crawford Street will be demolished.

The school is trying to raise £55,000 to kit out their new buildings with computer technology and interactive white boards.

A further £440 was also raised by the Parents and Teacher Association on the day from raffles, tombolas and selling cakes.

PTA member Carole Cliffe, whose two boys Hugo, eight, and Toby, seven, attend the school, said: “It was really well attended by past pupils and members of the community and present pupils and their families.

“We are really looking forward to our new building which is fitting for the needs of a modern day school.”
More commemorative bricks that will form part of the entrance to the new building were also sold during the open afternoon.
