The Golden Lion in Middlewich organised and hosted a charity car wash on Sunday 12th February.
£1,000 was raised to go to John Brunner Lodge’s chosen charity which is The Oaklands School Choirs in Winsford.
This £1,000 was boosted by the Golden Lion by £500. This magnificent amount will be added to the £500 already raised by the Lodge. This gives a grand total of £2,000.
Oaklands is a high school that caters for young people who have moderate to complex learning difficulties.
The catchment stretches from Ellesmere Port, through to Macclesfield and includes, but is not limited to, Chester, Winsford, Middlewich, Northwich, Sandbach, Nantwich, Poynton, and Crewe.
In April last year the Chamber Choir travelled to Northern Ireland to compete in the Bangor International Choral Festival where they successfully won their category. They were also awarded a crystal trophy for the best international choir of the competition.
These trips form a broader part of the curriculum as they involve Hotel stays, visits to Restaurants and generally integrating into modern life and society. These experiences are generally not available to these pupils and the funds raised help to ensure they can continue.
