to give pupils a platform to serve their local community has been launched at The Hollins.
The Let’s Be Foundation is a youth-led social action initiative at the school which aims to empower pupils. It is run entirely by young people aged 11 to 16 and focuses on three priority areas – helping people in need and the homeless, tackling social isolation among the elderly and supporting people with illness.
As part of the initiative the team hosted an event called The Great Elderly Tea Party at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel on October 4.
More than 120 guests from across East Lancashire attended and enjoyed afternoon tea and live entertainment from the school choir and Didsbury String Quartet. Sheila Clay, who was at the event, said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, it has been wonderful.
“The pupils are a credit to the school and their parents.”
Fellow attendee Joyce Edgar added: “It was such a lovely afternoon.
“The pupils have all been wonderful, they are all so chatty and polite.”
