Members of the Lord’s Taverners in the East Midlands got to see the results of their fundraising and volunteering first hand again today at The Derby School for the Deaf. The whole school were delighted with their brand new, top of the range, tailored minibus for use by the 250 students at the school.
Marie Brown, Regional Development Executive with the Lord’s Taverners, presented the key to the students at a ceremony on 6th September in Derby. She said ‘It’s always an honour to see the results of the work we do in local communities and it proves that the effort, energy and hard work we put into our fun, innovative events make a very tangible and distinct difference to the lives of the young people we support, right here in the East Midlands.’
Ann Keepax, the Regional Chair of the Midlands Lady Taverners received a tour of the school and spoke to the students and the teaching staff about the work of the Lord’s Taverners. Ann, in her role as Lady Taverners Chair has always been an advocate of building a working relationship with our recipients and offered her support for future projects that the school are looking at introducing such as a sensory room and some specialist outdoor, play equipment.
The Midlands Lord’s and Lady Taverners are looking forward to helping the school flourish and grow in the future.
