More cash has been flowing towards the Greentree School's future accessible playground.

Drumheller Walmart's store manager, Neil Bogle presented a cheque yesterday, June 10, to the project.

"He presented us with a $1,000 grant for our accessible playground project," stated parent council member, Nikki Isley.

The fundraising goal was set at $350,000 and they've almost reached the total.

"We've done well with the fundraising in the last few months, a lot of people really stepped up and the casino gala went really well. We're actually only about $25,000 from our total goal, which is really good because we're so close," Isley explained.

"That total goal that we're just $25,000 short for is for the entire project, that's including replacing the old pour in place. We really want to do it all at the same time to get a really smooth surface for the entire playground," she concluded.

Greentree School's parent council will be meeting later on this week to discuss future fundraisers.
