A SCHOOL specialising in teaching children with impaired hearing has been awarded a £2,000 grant.

Pelham Primary School in Bexleyheath was awarded one of the first grants from E.ON's Employee Community Fund, which is to be spent on a "creative week".

Last Thursday E.ON employee Penelope Gravatt presented the cheque at an art workshop in the school, which both her nephews attend.

Ms Gravatt , a facilities coordinator said: "I actively support and help fund raise for this wonderful school and I'm thrilled E.ON is able to help in this way.

"The hearing department assists deaf children, those who are hard of hearing and their siblings to lead a normal life while learning to communicate through sign. The school and all who work there are heaven sent and deserve all the support they can get."

The grant will be spent on activities for the school's Creative Week which will give children opportunities to develop and experience new skills through the arts.

The donation will go towards providing music, dance, pottery and cookery activities for all pupils.
