We’ve asked Thornbury School to help us raise £600 for classroom furniture. At the moment there are insufficient desks and chairs for the number of pupils who attend. In many classrooms the children frequently have to squash together in a way that makes writing very difficult indeed. In other classrooms the children sit on branches of wood that are nailed to uprights, rather like crude wooden benches, but with no desks to write on. The provision of furniture is a real priority for them now.
