Sporting students from Pool Academy have been given a donation for new cricket equipment.
Members of The Rotary Club of Redruth visited the school recently with a £50 cheque to go towards the cost of new balls and other items.
It was handed over to Jarrod Hambly the Pool Academy U13 cricket captain. The new kit items were used in The Crusaders Cup competition which is sponsored by Rotary Clubs in Cornwall.
After the cheque presentation the school cricket team took part in the U13 match V Redruth School which resulted in a tie – for the second year in a row.
They then took part in the quarter-finals against Penair School on Thursday (June 8) where they played well and had a good game.
Julian Hosking, PE teacher at Pool Academy, said: “We are delighted to receive the money. It will help go towards the cost of cricket balls and kit. This new equipment was used when we practiced for the quarter-finals.”
