"When I return to Bolton School to talk to pupils about entrepreneurship, my message is to 'go for it'. This is an attitude that I had instilled in me during my time at the school where my curiosity was fuelled and I became interested in ideas."

Non-Uniform Day Raises Over £700 for Birtenshaw

Thursday, 30 March 2017

  • Charity of the Term Cheque for Birtenshaw

Girls’ Division pupils have raised £713.41 with their Spring Term non-uniform day in support of Birtenshaw, a charity which provides a range of services for children and young adults with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Year 13 pupil Alex Duxbury suggested Birtenshaw as the charity of the term as she lives nearby and is aware of the work done by the charity.

Birtenshaw was first established in 1956 as a school for children with cerebral palsy. Birtenshaw School is currently celebrating its 60th academic year, now catering to young people aged 4 to 18 with complex physical and learning disabilities including autism spectrum conditions. The charity also has a college for 16 to 25 year olds with Special educational Needs and Disability, and eight children’s homes including the facility to offer overnight short breaks for children and adults.

Stuart Stokes, Birtenshaw’s Director of Income Generation, visited Bolton School to collect the girls’ donation and thank Alex for putting the charity forward.
