Langton Public School is the successful recipient of $16,600

On February 13, 2019 100 Women Who Care Norfolk selected Langton Public School as the recipient of $16,600 (presented by 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.  As the school board or province doesn’t pay for playground equipment, this fundraising activity fell to a parent group and teachers.  After organizing multiple events, this group has raised $35,000 of their $50,000 goal.  Their goal will ensure that multiple pieces of equipment are purchased which will be suitable for children ages 5 to 12.  This equipment must be accessible for children with special needs.  The Langton school has a self-contained autism class who will also benefit from this purchase.

The entire Langton community will be able to take advantage of this equipment as it will be utilized at night, on weekends and all summer long.  This investment will help local children build strong bodies, social skills, confidence and work off energy in a positive way.

This brings the total donations since May 2014 to just under $313,800…supporting 20 local charities.
