Langton Public School is the successful recipient of $16,700.
On February 13, 2019 100 Women Who Care Norfolk selected Langton Public School as the recipient of $16,700 (presented by member Diane Luke).
The money will be used to purchase playground equipment. Equipment which was originally installed in 1993 was deemed unsafe in 2017 and removed. The goal is to raise $50,000 and to date the school has successfully raised $35,000 through various fundraising initiatives. They are committed to purchase multiple pieces of equipment which would be suitable for children aged 5 to 12. This equipment must be accessible for children with special needs. The Langton school has a self-contained autism class who, along with the entire Langton community, will benefit from this purchase.
This brings the total donations since May 2014 to just under $313,900…supporting 20 local charities.
