PRIORY SCHOOL SPORTS DAY

June 22nd, 2015

As part of our continued commitment to working and forging links with our local community, we have been able to build a close relationship with the Priory School in Croydon. A few of our staff members attended the school’s Sports Day as designated Marshalls during National Volunteers’ Week. Priory is a maintained Community Special School for students between the ages of 11 and 19, who have severe learning difficulties and disabilities, as well as students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

Adorned with our Hi-Vis vests, Dalia and Sandy were stationed along the route of a sponsored walk undertaken by the students. Whilst assisting the students with their journey around a large field and over the surrounding roadways, the Marshalls provided encouragement by reminding the participants of the ice cream reward. The Ice Cream Van waiting at the school proved to be the perfect incentive! Dalia and Sandy had a very enjoyable afternoon, and were delighted to be included in such a special occasion for the students.

“What an inspiring and happy afternoon. We were very fortunate to have warm and sunny weather and there were smiling faces all around. The sponsored walk was an absolute success and a great achievement by all. It was my absolute pleasure to volunteer to assist the Priory School staff during this event”. Sandy Cook, Niblock

Niblock was delighted to support United St. Saviour’s Charity at their Choral Evensong and Special Annual Service of Commemoration recognising the legacy of Thomas Cure, Esq. – Saddler to Edward VI, Mary I, and Elizabeth I, and ancient benefactor of the Parish. The evensong service was held at Southwark Cathedral on Tuesday 16th June 2015 and celebrated the continuing support that United St. Saviour provides to individuals, communities and charities across the north of the borough.

Among Thomas Cure’s gifts to the parish, he bequeathed land and properties in nearby Park Street, comprising of almshouses called St. Saviour’s College for the Poor. The college remained there for almost 300 years until the arrival of the railways, and the almshouses stood until 2005, before they were relocated to Surrey and rebuilt in the form of fifty-four sheltered homes.

Today two pubs and seven shops with flats above occupy the land, providing over half the income that allows United St. Saviour’s Charity to afford the almshouses, in addition to making annual grants of £625,000 to support social enterprises, charities and groups doing amazing work across north Southwark and Bermondsey. Niblock are currently carrying out Internal and External extensive renovations of part of these properties.

United St. Saviour’s aim to develop more almshouses, which will have a profound impact for individuals in the heart of Bermondsey. Fifty-seven ‘extra care’ homes are to be built with an expected opening date of 2017.
