Generous clubbers have raised £6,000 for a primary school following a drive for donations at a well-known St Albans nightclub.
Club Batchwood presented the impressive sum to pupils at Margaret Wix primary school to help build their new outdoor classroom and reading area.
The money was raised following donations from clubgoers to the Echo Trust, a children’s charity run by the club’s operator The Deltic Group, at many of the venue’s club nights.
Manager Peter Bell said: “We get fantastic support throughout the year from our customers.
“The school has big ambitions and is committed to making learning fun and giving children the best opportunities to learn and develop. My two children are pupils there so I have seen first hand the progress being made.”
