The Foundation is delighted to have received £7,500 from the Lord’s Taverners to fund a new outdoor gym at Hedleys College.
The award has come at just the right time for the college, which moved from two sites to one combined site at Forest Hall at the start of the new term.
The project will see the installation of an outdoor gym ‘Bodyweight System’ for students which will include a hand bike, ab bench, recumbent bike, arm cycle and spinning bike.
The equipment will be placed in an easily accessible recreational area for use during lunchtime and breaks and will support them to regulate their sensory needs.
Use of the outdoor gym will make a difference to the overall health and wellbeing of each student and we are delighted to have received funding from Lord’s Taverners to make this possible.
