Helping sports facility at Mark Rutherford School

The Connolly Foundation has made a donation of £61,000 to Mark Rutherford School to provide a new floor to its sports hall.

The new premium sprung flooring system is covered in sport linoleum and is an excellent addition to the school.

School Business Manager Robina Garner is delighted with the result, “Mark Rutherford believes that sport makes a profound and positive impact on individuals, communities and wider society; promoting as it does both physical and mental health as well as fostering team work and healthy competition. The new sports hall floor will support the practical sporting excellence that we deliver at the school.

“We can now give our aspiring sports stars, and our have-a-go heroes, the surface they truly deserve.
We look forward to reaping the rewards of our students using this exciting new provision.”
