On Tuesday 23rd June 2009 the LTFUC were invited to attend Woodfield Special School in Kingsbury, north west London, to attend the official opening of the school’s new medical room, which had been completely furnished by the fund at a cost of £3,000.
In attendance on the day were the Chairman David Lessman and other members of the fund. After a welcoming speech by the Head Teacher, the Committee and other dignitaries, including the Mayor of Brent, were treated to a lovely buffet lunch prepared by the students of the sixth form and were then invited to attend the opening of the new sixth form building which incorporated the medical room. The furnishings the fund purchased included a pull-down bed, lock up medicine cabinets, curtains, a computer and accessories, plus many other items.
Before the LTFUC stepped in, the school did not have a proper medical room, but now with this purchase, the Welfare Officer can give the best treatment available to the students.
