POLICE have spared more than a few coppers to give a cash boost for schools in Gorleston.
In the latest donation Inspector Alun Gibbs presented a cheque for �500 at Cliff Park High last week.
The money will be used to provide a canopy outside the school's sports caf� which is expected to be put up during the Easter holiday.
It was part of a �5,000 award from the Norfolk Police problem solving plan to fund community projects at local schools.
The canopy will provide a social and gathering place during sports fixtures and support the school's sports college status.
