Linskill Chase

Linskill Chase

By Events

The popular Linskill Chase returns on Saturday 27th October with a new route around the haunted school and promises to be the scariest yet. For one night only the Linskill will be divided into four themed zones, each more terrifying than the last and inhabited with clowns and zombies, so you won’t know what is around each darkened corner.

The evening is split into thirty minute sessions, starting at 6pm and running through to midnight for the final run. Linskill Chase tickets are now on sale priced £7.95 and available from reception or online through Eventbrite (search for Linskill 2018 and please note a booking fee will apply).

Fit for Frank

Fit for Frank

By Events

Our first ever fitness fundraiser on Wednesday 26th September is designed for the community to try new activities, get active and show support for Franks Fight against Neuroblastoma, by raising funds for pioneering treatment in the USA to help prevent relapse of Neuroblastoma. Frank attends our nursery and having been diagnosed in February 2018 with high risk Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive cancer, he is responding well to the very invasive treatment. Frank still has a lot more treatment to go including radiotherapy and immunotherapy. Neuroblastoma has a high relapse rate and £200k is required so that Frank can receive pioneering treatment in America, which is designed to stop the cancer returning. Read More
