Buckingham Secondary School were among recipients, and have used the money to fund software. 

This will help the school communicate and provide resources to children learning at home. 

The donations will make sure that families will be bale to start a new term at school with resources they need to make home education rewarding and engaging despite the challenges. 

Gareth Williams, Buckinghamshire Council's Cabinet Member for Health and Culture, says:

"These funds will make a huge difference in the community's ability to provide lessons and, we hope, also help families get back to a more 'normal' routine of school life. Thank you Gawcott Fields Solar Farm, for embodying our Proud of Bucks campaign so well."

Cabinet Member for Education, Anita Cranmer, says:

"Our schools have really been going the extra mile over the last few weeks, with head teachers, teaching staff, support staff and governors all pulling together to support local children and families. 
 
"Our Council staff have been providing excellent support to schools and have put in incredible efforts through really supportive partnership working, for which we are very grateful.
 
But the support provided by Gawcott Fields Solar Farm is really outstanding and a very welcome addition - so on behalf of our school community I would like to say thank you!"
