In announcing that the Castle school will be this years beneficiary Tyche Inns Ltd and the organisers made the following statement.
The Castle School opened in September 2006 and caters for the needs of very special kids.
There can be no better cause than helping kids be "all they can" in today's complex society. All kids have a right to be educated and to leave school with a skill set that best suits their ability to deal with whatever the world throws at them. If kids are challenged either socially or physically then we have a duty, as a civilised society, to provide a safe and sound environment for them to develop and grow.
Our pub is about serving the community, we have a lot of fun and we have a lot of friends, we are fortunate to be able to enjoy social interactions, we are fortunate to have friends and to be able to laugh and joke about life on a daily basis. We are lucky because, for the most part, we are well balanced and are gifted with social skills. The Castle school works day in and day out to help kids achieve their personal goals and ambitions, to help them adjust and deal with what can be a harsh and alien environment
In our small way we would like this year to make a difference, if its only one kid, or one family that we help by supporting the school then we will have achieved more than we could have hoped for and nothing more than every kid in the world should expect.
We commend the Castle School in Cambridge for the work they do and we are privileged to be able to say, "This is the charity that our pub supports" -
Go Kids - be all you can, and make us all that bit better
Castle School opened in September 2006 on the site of the former Lady Adrian School in Cambridge. Together with Granta School in Sawston, it replaces the provision of four Cambridge special schools, as an area special school for pupils age 2-19 and has 165 places.
