West Park Primary School are set to be the first 'solar' school in Hartlepool.

Paul Hewitson, project co-ordinator of Hartlepower CIC asked listeners of Radio Hartlepool to vote in the 'M&S Community Energy' competition.

It was a nail-biting time as the local school was up against several across the country to be in with a chance of winning the funding of £40,000.

The pupils and parents used social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter to gain votes.

The school is already classed as a 'green flag eco school' and now winning this will ensure they can take it to the next level.

Radio Hartlepool helped this community action by producing a 'community break' news story which was played every day leading up to the closing date.
