Millbrook school's solar panel campaign hots up
A SCHOOL has raised more than half the £10,000 it needs to install solar panels on its roof.
Millbrook Primary School's ambitious fundraising campaign will be given a bit of pedal power on Saturday, February 23, when a sponsored bike ride will add more than £2,000 to the £5,600 already collected.
The 17 cyclists will pedal from Land's End to Millbrook in one day, a distance of more than 70 miles. Their main sponsor is Evely Electrical.
They will get a welcome home during a "fun afternoon" at the school.

The money is being raised through the nationwide Solar Schools project.
Schools are using an innovative fundraising toolkit to "crowd-source" money from their local communities to invest in solar panels.
Parents, businesses and alumni can sponsor sections of the school's "virtual solar roof" online at www.solarschools.org.uk/millbrook.
Millbrook is one of the four schools in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly selected to become part of the campaign.
