Paralympic Torch and Adrian visit Lonsdale
On Friday 22nd June 2018, Adrian returned to Lonsdale to share his experience of abseiling the Olympic Park Orbit in London. Adrian had spent half a year fundraising for the event. He joined the Christmas Fair in 2017 to sell cakes, and Lonsdale School held a GO Orange Day early in the Spring Term to help Adrian reach his fundraising target. £700 were raised with Lonsdale's help, and Adrian managed to raise more than £1400 altogether. He shared a video of the abseiling event in assembly and took lots of questions from pupils.
Leah from WheelPower also visited school to speak about WheelPower and their work. If you would like to find out more, visit www.wheelpower.org.uk. Leah brought along the Paralympic torch from the last Winter Olympics, and some pupils enjoyed holding it.
