Pub’s fund-raisers pull in school cash

REGULARS at a village pub have pulled out all the stops to raise funds for one of the city’s special schools.

The Walter De Cantelupe Inn in Kempsey collected £180 for Fort Royal Community Primary School after staging a number of fund-raising events.

Martin Lloyd-Morris, owner of the pub, selected the school as its chosen charity after discovering the support it offered pupil Molly Duffy, who lives in the village.

As well as visiting the Wylds Lane school to hand over the money, Mr Lloyd Morris was also given a tour of the site.

Margaret Jones, fund-raising administrator at the school, said: “It is absolutely wonderful because not only does it raise money so we are able to provide the extras for the children, it also raises the profile of the school which is very important.

“The fact Martin has also now been in to the school where he has been able to see what goes on and the facilities that we have here, it means that he will be able to go back and tell others about what we do.”
