Stonyhurst supports minibus appeal

We were delighted to welcome staff and children from Newfield School, Blackburn to Stonyhurst on 4th June. The College has a long standing relationship with Newfield, and its previous incarnation as Dame Evelyn Fox School. Our pupils have been visiting the children there weekly, to undertake wheelchair dancing for the last 20 years! Mr M Turner, who has supported this activity for many years, was very pleased to present staff with a cheque for £2000 – a donation from the Stonyhurst Children’s Holiday Trust, to support their fundraising for an adapted minibus.

The children had a lovely day out; their visit began with lunch, after which Mr Turner and Mrs Anderton escorted them to the dance studio to watch an energetic performance devised by Miss Southward for the College dancers. The children then went down the avenue to feed the ducks. Thank you to everyone who supported this visit.
