The Worshipful Company of
Blacksmiths are donating a magnificent sculpture of a swan made by some of the
leading blacksmiths in the country specially in aid of Treloar’s.
The swan is 6ft tall with a 6ft
wingspan and is intended to grace a beautiful lakeside or outdoor space. It is
completely unique. The swan is being auctioned in aid of Treloar's School and
College in Hampshire.
Treloar's is a centre of excellence for children and young
people with a range of profound physical and learning disabilities. Everyone
wants and expects their children to be healthy and happy.
The parents of the
children at Treloar's have to live with the fact that their children have
significant health problems, some of which are life limiting and may never do
the things that other people take for granted, "I thought he will
never be able to kick through the Autumn Leaves" as one Mother
In spite if this happiness is at the top of the agenda at
Treloar's, closely followed by achievement. This is a remarkable place that
ensures that all their children, whatever their disabilities, can learn,
play, make music and take part in a huge range of inspiring activities.
Treloar's makes full use of technology and every possible innovation to ensure
that they are always at the forefront of any development that can benefit their
children and young people and their families. All money raised from the sale of
this unique piece of art will help their constant drive to find
new ways to help their young people to be happy and fulfilled.
