Game Fair pledges £25,000 for special needs school
Visitors to the Game Fair this year can help a primary school buy a new wheelchair accessible minibus. Boys and girls aged three to 11 with disabilities and learning difficulties who attend Fort Royal school in Worcester are being supported by the Game Fair and its charity partner the Lord’s Taverners, which have pledged £25,000.
Delighted headteacher Ed Francis said: “Access to the community is an essential part of our curriculum because children need to see and experience the things that they are learning about. They also need to learn the skills they will need to use their local communities safely, such as awareness of dangers, if they are to become independent adults. Minibuses are vital for this work, but our current fleet of vehicles is getting very old and unreliable.
“Our two minibuses are 17 and 10 years old. They are inefficient to run and expensive to maintain. We are very grateful to the Lord’s Taverners, the Game Fair and their supporters who have pledged to provide us with funding towards a new bus.”
Game Fair visitors who want to support this
