Ingfield Light Railway Santa Special 2015

We have been sent this excerpt about the Santa Special that ran in December 2015 for the School, from the Staff Bulletin at Murgitroyd with full permission to share it with you.

The Santa Special was a brilliant success, we are so glad to be able to run events like this for the children at the school.

The bulletin reads:

‘Sue Catterall has sent photos taken at the Santa Special day, held at Ingfield Light Railway just before Christmas. Murgitroyd donated £75.00 towards the purchase of Christmas gifts for the children from Ingfield Manor School who attended the event.

The school cares for children between the ages of 3 and 19 with neurological motor impairment such as cerebral palsy. The pupils have a range of abilities and associated learning difficulties arising from cerebral palsy. Acknowledged as one of the leading centres for Conductive Education in the UK, the school has a national reputation for work developing communication.

Ingfield Light Railway is situated in the grounds of the school and is run by volunteers and provides steam train rides for the children. The Santa Special is always the highlight of the year and the company’s donation made it possible to run again this Christmas!’
