This month, Redhill-based company Bristow Helicopters visited The Orpheus Centre, an independent specialist college for young disabled adults, for the official re-opening of ‘Baseline’. ‘Baseline’ is a vital teaching space on the Orpheus campus that was recently refurbished using £78,000 generously donated by Bristow. The funding has allowed Orpheus to create a more flexible and fully accessible space for students with sensory impairments and learning difficulties. The old space has also been redecorated and received new computer suites, smart-boards and a state of the art music and video editing suite.
Lynn Reddick, Head of Learning said: “The refurbishment has transformed what was a tired, untidy and slightly unloved area, into a vibrant hub for students both during the learning day and in their free time”.
