Rock legend Bryan Adams donates cash to build all-weather playground at Chelsea primary school

Bryan Adams gave a Chelsea primary school one of the ‘best days of their lives’ after he donated cash to create an outdoor playground.

Ashburnham Community School in World’s End can finally say I found Someone after Adams’ donation, made through The Bryan Adams Foundation, allowed the school to create a new outdoor playground.

Until recently it was unsafe for pupils to Run To You (or anyone else) in poor weather as the surface would become unsuitable for safe play.

Adams said: “This area desperately needed attention to be a safe place for all the little toddlers to muck about outside.

“The Bryan Adams Foundation was delighted to kick-start this initiative for all the children in the World’s End Estate, and hopefully we’ll do more in the coming years.”

Now pupils will be able to use John Southall Architects-designed outdoor playground regardless of the weather.

Ashburnham’s Head Teacher, Bella Street, welcomed Adams’ contribution.

She said: “This very generous donation by The Bryan Adams Foundation means that our youngest children now have a bigger, brighter and most importantly safer place in which to play, exercise and learn.

“We couldn’t ask for a better neighbour.”

Whether Adams will also stock the school with six-strings is yet to be confirmed.
