WHAT HAS THE BRONTE SISTERS AND MIRFIELD ROTARY IN COMMON?

They were under the same roof – at Roe Head School – where the Bronte sisters were educated and later Charlotte became a teacher.

Mirfield Rotarians’ visit, some time ago, to Holly Bank was not meant to be a trip down the memory lane, but they were pleased to hear that the Club met in the grand building for sometime.

More importantly, the visiting Rotarians, were mesmerised by the impressive modern facility, offe ring care for 100 pupils as well as day care and weekend respite services.

Suzane Barton, who conducted the tour said: ‘We’ve pupils from all over the country – at present from 28 local authorities. We are the only centre that offers wholesome and holistic care. We are a ‘cradle to grave’ home. Our motto is ‘quality of life' for life. We meet the needs of children and adults with complex disabilities. Our aim is to reach way beyond meeting purely physical needs to nurture, develop and enrich the lives of those who spend time with us.’

She adds: ‘We are dependant on the good will of the community and look for volunteer support from people.’
