What the Sports Hall will look like
What the Sports Hall will look like
Leon Roberts, Headmaster of Belmont writes today 18th October:
It's getting really exciting…the building is beginning to look like it will be when it finished.  I persuaded the builders to take me round inside this morning.  

In the fundraising campaign brochure I wrote: “The new sports hall will make a tremendous difference to the children of Belmont and Grimsdell and the wider community. Please look carefully at this booklet and think about how you can contribute.”
I am still convinced it will make a great difference to our children.  I am also determined to get the campaign to £1m.  We started the campaign with the amazing gift of £500,000 and very soon people responded and became Sporting Legends, Gold, Silver or Bronze Medallists, others came to the Ball for a Wall and rode on or supported the London-Paris Bike Ride.  More recently some have bought bricks on the Pathway to Fitness.  The front page of the brochure said “Helping to build Belmont together”.  Thank you so much to all of you who have given; you have certainly done this.  We have now reached an amazing £980,000.
If you haven’t yet contributed to the campaign, now is the time.  It is in its last weeks.  Don’t miss the chance to become a Medallist or get your child’s name on the Pathway to Fitness.  Whether you are a parent or an Old Belmontian it would be great to see that you are part of building Belmont together for the benefit of both current and future Belmontians.  

How can you help?
