Willingdon Residents’ Association presented two cheques to Willingdon pre-school and the Friends of Willingdon Primary School to help with their gardens.
Both Schools entered the Willingdon and Jevington in Bloom competition and tied for first place in the Environmental Category.
A spokesman for the residents association said: “The children are very enthusiastic about their gardens and needed help towards a bench for the pre school and some staging for their poly tunnel at the Primary School.
“At the Primary School the School Council came along together with other children to accept the cheque.
“Willingdon Residents’ Association holds fund raising quizzes and together with the very low subscription of £1 per family to belong to the association aims to plough as much money as possible into local causes and charities.”
