EIGHT students from Bishop Heber High School Sixth Form, known as the Bishop Heber Bolesworth Team, have worked together with Diana Barbour, High Sheriff of Cheshire, to plan and organise events at Bolesworth Castle.
The events will raise funds for the High Sheriff’s selected charities, Cheshire Crimebeat and Fine Cell Work.
There will be an exhibition of needlepoint cushions, rugs and patchwork quilts hand-embroidered by inmates in 29 British prisons at Bolesworth Castle, Tattenhall, on Wednesday from 9.30am-4pm. The items will be for sale.
Admission is £3, to include a cup of coffee, and refreshments will be on sale throughout the day.
Interior designer Nina Campbell, who has designed some of the cushions, will attend from 10-11.30am and will be signing copies of her book Elements of Design.
The Bishop Heber Bolesworth Team comprises Josh Cason, Amy Payton Edwards, Terri Houston, Kitty Lee, Tom Lee, Arthur Morriss, Hannah Parkinson and Emma Potts.
