Old Holly Farm was delighted be a sponsor at this years Lancaster & Morecambe Education Awards 2016, run by the Lancaster & Morecambe newspapers. The winners were announced at a glittering ceremony at the Grand Hall, Lancaster University on Wednesday 30th November 2016. We were proud to sponsor this years “Primary School Pupil of the Year” award, with 3 fantastic finalists. The overall winner was Reece Holt, from St Helens C of E primary school. Reece has undergone surgery and treatment for a brain tumour and subsequent complications and has amazed everybody with his strength and resilience. He and his brother Callum had a sponsored head shave for Clatterbridge Cancer centre and friends and family were motivated to do other fundraising activities, including a sky drive, to raise over £2,500.
