A big thank you to Selsey Walking Group, including Katie’s aunt, who have raised £120 which will support a teacher in the Quest school in Villa Maria for a year.  Achievements like this are massively important in determining the success of the school – the building may be built, but without support for the teachers, it can’t fulfil […]

It uses maps, photographs and literature from our Collections […]
