Homes Estate Agents have teamed up with Treloar’s School & College and is now committed to assisting Treloars to continue the incredible work it does, in enabling education and independence for its 170 physically disabled young students.
To begin this new partnership Homes is sponsoring the production of Treloar’s Today, their twice yearly news publication which gives a great insight into the activities at this amazing local establishment.
In the latest Autumn issue, there are highlights of some of the more notable events in their very busy calendar. In June, Royal Patron HRH The Countess of Wessex visited the school to see again at first hand the tireless commitment from the staff, Trustees, Patrons and Govenors and formally thank them for massive contributions. She also spent time with the students and even went head to head in a game of Boccia, a game similar to petanque, with Phoebe one of students.
Alan Titchmarsh MBE, a local Alton resident himself, is also featured visiting the school when he opened the new Primary Playground and also helped putting the finishing touches to the outdoor planting area. He said “What goes on at Treloar’s is hugely revered by those who know and those who live close by. It’s a very special place, filled with very special people.”
On 3rd July the new Treloar coach arrived seating up to 50 students making the need to use 2 or 3 smaller coaches on day outings with groups of students, a thing of the past. Generous donors made this possible including a sizeable one from the Worshipful Company of Chartered Surveyors, a Livery Company of the City of London, whose Past Master formally cut the ribbon before everyone climbed aboard.
The 2019 calendar of Treloar’s events is already packed, but notably still remaining for this year are –
14th Nov 2018 – a fascinating lecture by Douglas Skeggs, Art Historian at the Treloar’s campus
2nd Dec 2018 – Treloar’s Student Christmas concert at the campus
7th Dec 2018 – Treloar’s Christmas Fayre with stalls, activities and refreshments at the campus
