A business has handed Lancaster pupils a boost with a £2,500 donation.
InspirUS is a programme run by Lancaster Grammar School to help gifted children in local state schools reach their potential.
Wealth manager Brewin Dolphin made the decision to support the charity due to its impact on the local community.
The charity, created in 2009, is open to all of Lancaster’s primary schools for children in years three and four.
It aims to raise aspirations and encourage able pupils, particularly those who may not have fully appreciated their academic potential, to explore avenues beyond the confines of the National Curriculum.
Ian Booth, director of Brewin Dolphin in the North West, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer our support to InspirUS. The charity does such excellent work within the community to allow children from all backgrounds to realise their potential.”
