“ A Beacon of Hope”— Seashell Trust celebrating 200 yearsCode:
All proceeds will be donated to the Seashell Trust
In 1823 two successful Manchester merchants had the vision to call a public meeting to establish a charity - the Manchester School for the Deaf and Dumb which from humble beginnings on Stanley Street Salford would move to Old Trafford in 1837 and then to Cheadle Hulme, Stockport, in the 1950s where now the campus is being transformed so that pupils and staff enjoy some of the finest facilities anywhere.
From being one of the country’s oldest deaf schools the Charity now provides specialist education and residential care for profoundly and multiple disabled children and young people. On this journey the Charity has influenced national legislation, introduced novel methods of education and training including the use of technology and has enjoyed Royal Patronage since 1897.
