“Having visited myself and seen the amazing achievements of the students supported by incredibly dedicated support staff, I am thrilled that we can help in this small way.”

Dominic Tinner, Head of Development at Seashell Trust, added: “Sport is a great motivator for students at Seashell Trust.

“It is only through the support of people and organisations such as 100 Events that we can provide them with specialist equipment and activities that enhance their young lives.”
