Trampoline installed in Humberston Park School's new exercise hub facility
A PLUSH new physiotherapy facility at a special school has given pupils and staff a lift.
A 20ft trampoline is the centrepiece of the new exercise hub which will aid pupils at Humberston Park School with a range of disabilities.
The £250,000 room with a beautiful view of gardens was christened by Jasmine Lake, 7, who suffers from a very rare condition.
Her sister Jade, two, was able to enjoy the trampoline, which is sunken into the floor along with parents Adele and Craig Lake.

Other pupils with a range of disabilities, including Downs Syndrome, will also be able to use the trampoline.
It can be covered over and used as an exercise room for up to six students at anyone time.
It has been designed by Cleethorpes-based Hodson Architects and is located next to the hydrotherapy pool.
The school's highly-specialised physiotherapist, Frances George said: "There are few schools which have such a facility.
"It promotes independence and can be relaxing and challenging, and helps improves muscle movement and development.
"It is all done through fun and play, and helps all those who are at the high-end of complex needs."
She said the hub could soon be accessible to people with disabilities in the community as well as the 103 pupils at the school.
Headteacher Andy Zielinski said the money for the exercise room had come from school funds which are supported from Central Government.
He said: "It is fantastic. It is great to see the kids using the trampoline.
"It is a resource that can be used by people from all over Lincolnshire, not just North East Lincolnshire."
