School needs your help to win a £2,000 charity donation

St Mary’s Special School could be in line for a £2,000 windfall.

The school has been accepted to be a part of the Direct Debit Big Break Scheme, and needs public support to win the money.

A spokeswoman for the school said: “This month we face the public vote - and our young people are in with a chance of winning up to a £2,000 donation for the school!

“The Direct Debit Big Break is a scheme that allows the public to vote for a charity or good cause – the one with the most votes at the end of the month will receive a £2,000 cash donation from Direct Debit. The runner up will receive £1,000, and the next 20 charities will receive £100 each to help their causes.“Please help our children and young people with severe communication disabilities and other complex needs by voting for the Talking Trust today!
