Conservative candidate Sir Michael Fallon recently visited the new Sevenoaks Primary School construction site. He was given a tour of the new building by the school’s headmaster, Alan Duffy.
The school needs to raise £500,000 to complete the development; £450,000 has been raised so far. The Hands Trust, run by Guy and Julia Hands, has been match funding every pound raised. Local businesses have also been very supportive. The new building is due to be completed by the end of the year.
Alan Duffy has raised around £45,000 from his famous walks. Michael congratulated Alan on his efforts and on the progress that has been made on the new build.
Michael said: ‘This is a perfect example of the parents and the local community coming together. Local businesses have backed this new building, as have I. Future students will benefit from these renewed facilities for many years to come.’
