Church of England schools across the Diocese are responding in the fight against coronavirus by making generous donations of equipment to the NHS and other care providers.
It follows an initial email making the request to the Diocesan Board of Education from a member of their Associate Advisory Team, whose daughter is a Senior Nurse at one of the main Lancashire hospitals.

Responding to the donations being made Helen Sage, Advisor to High Schools and Academies, said: "This is a fantastic response from our schools.
