The Wolfson Foundation have awarded Ravenscliffe a grant of £52,000 to help construct a state-of-the-art sensory room at the new centre at Spring Hall, Halifax.
Established in 1955, The Wolfson Foundation supports and promotes excellence in the fields of science and medicine, health and disability, education and the arts, and humanities. All funding is based on expert peer review, and over £750 million (£1.25 billion in real terms) has been awarded in grants to some 10,000 projects over the last 58 years.
The grant forms part of the Foundations latest round of funding, and the Ravenscliffe community are thrilled with the award. Gareth Hunter, funding co-ordinator, said “We were all absolutely amazed when the letter arrived in the post. The grant is a huge amount of money, and will go a long way to making our dreams for Spring Hall, and our students, a reality”
The Wolfson Foundation join other large national charities in backing the project. Paul Ramsbottom, Chief Executive of the Wolfson Foundation, said “We are delighted to be supporting Ravenscliffe and were impressed by excellence of the School and the ambition of project.”
