“Little Pips” at Hollybank School – Rugby Football Lodge Donation

On Tuesday 20 June, four members of the Rugby Football Lodge No 9811 visited Hollybank School in Mirfield, West Yorkshire. For over 60 years, the school, set in a former Roman Catholic seminary, has been dedicated to the care of children, young people and adults with multiple and profound disabilities. Their motto is “Providing Quality of Life, For Life.”

Earlier this year, the Lodge made a donation of £3,000 from its own charitable fund to Hollybank School. The donation will be used for the “Little Pips” which is dedicated to developing skills, sharing experiences and having lots of fun for children between the ages of 0 and 5 years.

After meeting some of the children with their mums, a short tour of the premises and the facilities that are available took place. During the coffee break that followed, it became quite obvious that the visit had made a considerable impression on each member of the Lodge, especially the open and friendly greeting. The Worshipful Master, W Bro Tony Rennison remarked, “It is amazing that everyone we’ve seen, mothers, children and all the staff, they have all been smiling. What a friendly, welcoming place!”
