Karl Handy, Holy Trinity Solar Schools Co-ordinator:
“As a school we are genuinely moved by how the children, parents and community have embraced our Solar Schools Campaign. From a donation of £5 via the Tooth Fairy through to Shadbolt Rope Access’ £1000 pledge every penny counts, but beyond the money each contribution represents coming together in a common cause to make a long term positive impact on our planet. It’s brilliant!”

First Gold Package Donor (£1000) Shadbolt Rope Access Ltd:
“Shadbolt Rope Access Ltd provides premier services to the Cleaning and Rope Access industries. As a company we recognise the need to do more to address and help combat climate change via renewable energy sources. We are very pleased to donate to that cause in a way that benefits one of our local community schools.”

Oswick Ltd (Bronze £250):
“Oswick ltd are happy to support this worthy cause, which not only will help the school but also slow down climate change.”

Richards Edward Group LLP (Bronze £250):
“Richard Edwards Group LLP was established in Halstead over 30 years ago and continues to build on their enviable reputation for providing excellent service and support to many local businesses and charitable organisations. As a local firm of accountants and business advisors, we care deeply about supporting our community and are extremely pleased to be able to assist Holy Trinity Primary School with this solar project. It is great to see the school taking this positive approach to reducing their carbon footprint and providing their pupils with such a good example of environmental responsibility at a young age.”

Emma Kemp, Solar Schools Project, 10:10:
“The Danceathon was so much fun and I was completely blown away by the children’s enthusiasm! Holy Trinity have really made the Solar Schools project their own. With the support of the local community, I have no doubt they’ll hit their target by the end of the year.”
