A NORTH Yorkshire primary school is among the first to benefit from a local trust grant.

Easingwold Community Primary School has been awarded £1,800 by The Pavers Foundation, the charitable trust created by family-owned show retailer, Pavers, which has its head office in York

The donation will go towards a 3D printer, which will help the school to maintain a contemporary curriculum and enhance the learning experience for its 250 pupils.

The donation was applied for by Pavers senior HR officer Sarah Linsley, whose two children, Daniel and Benjamin, attend the school, which she said "does a fantastic job job with a limited budget".

Headteacher Chris Pearce said: "We were delighted to receive the generous donation from The Pavers Foundation.

"Children will now be able to design and make their own objects.

"Seeing things leap from the screen into something they can touch and use will be an experience they will never forget."
