Sunday, 19th June - Prior's Court School
"Family Group" by Peter Hayes
Priors Court School is a specialist school for children with autism and it held an open day (with entry by donation) on Sunday, so MrM and I made this our charity for the day. We had a walk around the grounds and checked out the fabulous sculptures that appear in every room and all parts of the gardens.
MrM also bought me a slice of cupcake and Victoria sponge which he said was a contribution to my charity every day blog; what a sweetie he is.
Leonard's Dog by Dame Elisabeth Frink. Think this was my favourite, as this large bronze statue is there to welcome children as they come and go between their classes and living areas. Dame Elisabeth has a close association with where I'm from in Dorset as she's famous for her Tolpuddle Martyrs statue.
Prior's Court School has been shortlisted to win £60,000 in the People's Millions and needs 20,000 votes to win on 29th June.
If they win, the money will go towards saving their stables, creating a dedicated animal assisted therapy area and to building a nature trail with activites for pupils.
