Stars at a school in the village of Kettering have received a big boost with a donation to help with their stage productions.

The sound and lighting systems at Cranford CE Elementary School were in desperate need of replacement by a fundraising campaign planned by the parents.

But thanks to a donation from property developer Hanwood Park, the students’ end-of-year show will be dazzling.

School Principal Rob Tyman said: “We are extremely grateful to Hanwood Park for this incredible donation.

“Now we have state-of-the-art equipment that will delight parents and the community with vivid scenes, stage-worthy colorful lighting and crystal-clear sound.”

Mr Tyman said: “We wanted to refurbish the video and audio equipment in the school hall to do this better and we asked Friends of Cranford School (The FoCS) to organize a fundraiser for funds.”

FoCS member Lizzy Stirzaker contacted the community team at Hanwood Park LLP and asked for their support. She was surprised when they responded, offering a generous £2,000 donation.

Rachel Underwood, on behalf of Hanwood Park LLP, said: ‘Cranford is one of the neighboring parishes of Hanwood Park and we have been advised that Friends of Cranford School are raising funds to redevelop the school hall .

“Having heard firsthand how the new equipment will benefit children and the wider school community, we were only too happy to donate £2,000 towards the improvement works.”

Mr Tyman added: ‘Doing this in time for this year’s performances simply wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and fundraising of Lizzy, the FoCS and our school community.’
