Ashley Borley, a parent who is a carpenter, made the grand chair with his son’s assistance. Funding was provided by Friends of Grange View and a sponsored silence by pupils raised £327 for the finishing touches.

The fabric was then picked, foam ordered and a seamstress commissioned to do the work.
