Sniffers handing cheque to Welcombe Hills School
2019 - £1500 to Welcombe Hills School

The picture is of the visit of Chairman, Martin Neale and Secretary, Brian Parsons to the Welcombe Hills School in Stratford upon Avon. This School does unbelievable work with 180 children aged between 3-18 years old, who suffer from physical and mental disabilities. Such are the requirements of these children that the School employs over 100 staff to deliver amazing care and development opportunities to those who cannot benefit from mainstream education.

Seen here with Nicky Morle, the Office and HR manager, handing over the cheque which will be used to purchase educational aids, which help to build independency and perseverance as well as igniting a child’s imagination. It also keeps little hands busy, promotes the formation of independence, cognitive activity, and much more!

The School is embarking on a major project to build a new activity playground for 11-16 year olds in the existing grounds and this donation is a small, but nevertheless much appreciated, contribution towards the fund raising project.
