The Shewsy's annual visit to Shrewsbury School

Friday 4 May 2012

The club had its annual visit to Shrewsbury School on 21st – 22nd April and a fantastic time was had by all. Twenty-four young people and eight members of staff took part in the trip and as always the school offered a packed programme of activities and exceptional hospitality. Club members participated in horse riding, mountain biking and the obligatory Stiperstones Walk. The annual football match resulted in a keenly contested 7-6 victory for the club with some great football played by both teams.

Henry Corbett delivered a powerful address in Chapel reminding us all of the value of remaining non-judgmental as formal and informal educators and club member Ruby Molloy’s reading to the 700 people in Chapel was beautifully spoken.

Many thanks to Jenny Burge, Colm Keeley and all the staff and pupils at Shrewsbury School for making our stay so enjoyable.

In other news, twelve members gave up their Easter Saturday to raise £624 for the club by bag-packing at Sainsbury’s Rice Lane. Well done to all those young people and a big thanks to Cathy and Phil at Sainsbury’s for allowing this to happen.

Liverpool Housing Trust continue to fund several projects and activities in the club including boxing training, go-karting, a trip to Chester Zoo and a photography project. LHT have been great supporters of the club and we are extremely grateful for their ongoing support.
