Linda Woodburn, Chairman of FPC, said: “All members of the cooperative are very grateful for the generosity of Orcina Ltd.

“This will be a very exciting time for schools, as we continue our work alongside the opportunities that this additional funding will provide.”

Orcina Ltd has previously supported numerous charities and causes in and around Ulverston. The company’s attention was mostly directed to the projects orally.

The promised financial injection for FPC schools comes at a time when educators face various challenges, including helping children make up for lost time in education, as the nation recovers from the pandemic.

The full list of FPC schools is as follows:

  • Ascam Village School
  • Burlington CE School, Kirkby

Decisions regarding the specific areas in which the money will be spent will be made by the principals and governors of individual FPC schools.
