They received £5,000.

A charity that provides in-school teaching and support to children has been awarded funding.

CRiBS has received £5,000 to help provide additional teaching for primary school boys in Bexley.

The donation was provided by the Santander Foundation, which offers grants to charities for projects that help disadvantaged people in local communities.

The grant will fund Boys Noise clubs, which aim to help children develop listening and team building skills and discuss different issues and feelings.

Simon Davidson, business manager at CRiBS said: “Schools tell us what a huge difference Boys Noise is making.

“Educationally boys are improving well, but the club helps them to feel better about themselves and to cooperate more with others.

“We are very grateful to the Santander Foundation, this grant means we can continue to build on the success of the programme and reach more children.

“Teachers, parents and schools have been so pleased with the work that we have also set up a similar project for girls.”

Mohammed Rasal Hossan, personal banker at Santander’s Sidcup branch, said: “The Santander Foundation makes hundreds of donations every year to good causes throughout the UK. “Our branch is committed to playing a key part in the community and we are delighted to be supporting CRiBS, and hope the donation makes a real difference to local people.”
