A city school and nursery which was fundraising to create a sensory room has more than doubled its target.
Parents at Kingswells Primary School initially wanted to raise £5,000 to upgrade a specialist room for additional support needs children, but managed to gather around £12,000 after businesses in Kingswells and Westhill joined their cause.
And the funding boost has now seen two rooms created.
Nexen, Premier Oil, Apache and Maersk Training all donated money to the sensory rooms along with other companies in the area.
Moira MacIver, head teacher at Kingswells Primary School, said: “We are delighted to have this fantastic resource and we appreciate the support we have had from the parents, local companies and in particular the four main sponsors, Premier Oil, Maersk Training, Nexen and Apache.
“The parents have done a fantastic job to raise the amount of money they have.”
Elizabeth Connon, whose daughter will use the new facility, and Clare Kaczmarek helped raise the cash.
Elizabeth said: “The support we have had from many of the oil and gas companies around Kingswells has been brilliant.
“The smaller companies in Kingswells and Westhill have also made great contributions to the sensory rooms, which we are very grateful for.
“We also raised a lot of cash when we held our sponsored walk event and our bingo night.”
Mark McDonald, MSP for the area, attended the opening event and said: “I think the new sensory rooms are fantastic facilities.”
