Star to launch sensory room

Have your say

EX-BILL star Iain Fletcher, who played DC Rod Skase, is set to launch a new sensory room at St Crispin’s School designed to create a relaxing educational environment for pupils.

The actor, who is currently playing Bill Sikes in Oliver! at Edinburgh Playhouse, will visit the school, which caters for 50 young people with physical disabilities and learning difficulties, on Monday.

Installed under a joint project by BT and The Lord’s Taverners, the sensory room features sights, sounds and textures which help disabled children to learn in an environment that suits their needs.

Together, BT and The Lord’s Taverners are investing £400,000 over three years to install 12 new multi-sensory areas in schools across the UK.
