A Shropshire secondary school's launching a raffle to help refurbish its science labs.
The Corbet School in Baschurch has launched the fundraising drive as headteachers gathering in Telford for their annual conference claim school budgets are in crisis.
The government says it's spending more than ever, but the Corbet's chair of governors Roger Ford says it's not covering the increased costs of pensions and pay.
Quote Message: It's our 60th anniversary this year, so we're going to celebrate that and we're going to have a year-long raffle and we're going to hopefully raise some money towards the £200,000 that we need to refurbish and modernise our science labs. We shouldn't have to run a raffle, in my view, to do such things, but we're not left with any alternative." from Roger ford Chair of Governors of the Corbet School
