Organisers of the Sandon Fields Festival have presented a cheque for £5,000 to the village school.
Richard Maskell and Lawrie Alderman, who wanted to demonstrate their commitment to the community with the event, were pleased to give the donation to Sandon JMI School.
The money raised will go towards a new playground, which will be done over the school holidays.
Lawrie, who owns Poplars Farm where the festival was held in June, said that “Sandon School would be a worthy contender for the money raising aspect of the festival”.
Approximately 2,700 people attended the music and world food weekend, which included live music and acts across a variety of genres.
