The Friends of Millbrook Primary School thought their fundraising might be at an end when their barbecue fell to pieces at last June’s sports day.
But with help from community facilitator Gail Light, staff at the Homebase depot at Lydiard Field have come up with a brand new replacement.
Rebecca Boase, chair of the friends association, said: “Buying a new barbecue big enough to serve several hundred people at a school event was going to be far too expensive to make it worthwhile.
"So we’re really thankful to Homebase for coming to our rescue, and Gail for arranging their donation.”
