A play scheme for disabled children during the Easter and summer school holidays has been given a grant of £15,000.

It has been running at Walton Leigh School by White Lodge Centre for more than 15 years and gives children the chance to take part in face painting, arts and crafts, cooking workshops and a magicians show.

Walton Charity has given the scheme the funding for the next three years with an extra £910 for play equipment.

Jenny Steptoe, trust and corporate fundraiser, said: "This very generous donation will help disabled children living in the borough of Elmbridge, providing access to fun and interesting activities in a safe and supportive environment."

The grant will support at least 25 disabled children and young people, between four and 12-years-old. The scheme will run for eight days during the Easter holidays and 15 days during the summer holidays.
