Seb and Richard hard at work on stage at Highfield

The 23rd March saw the RWW road show at Highfield School for the kids Easter disco. After a few technical problems with the equipment, and the kind assistance of one of the kids parents the problem was resolved and the party got underway. The kids, parents and RWW volunteers had an enjoyable evening. The school kindly gave our Chairman Richard some Easter eggs to pass onto the childrens ward at Trafford General.
