Kindhearted stranger made visit to cafe extra special for pupils from specialist school
PUPILS who attend a specialist school in Crosby which educates youngsters with special needs have a kindhearted stranger to thank for making their visit to a cafe extra special.
Children from Crosby High School enjoyed a visit to Crossroads Cafe, on Liverpool Road, to enjoy some cake and refreshments.
It's part of a series of trips to local spots in the community, such as Crosby beach and the Pinewoods, which allows them to get out of the classroom.
When school staff went to pay the bill, they were told by cafe workers that it had already been settled by a generous customer, who had already left.
Louise Williams, who is a teaching assistant at Crosby High School, wants to thank the stranger for his gift to the pupils.
She said: “You don't hear a lot of nice stories nowadays, so this was a very special gesture and we really appreciate it.
“Unfortunately we don't know who the gentleman was, but I've left a thank you card at the cafe so hopefully he will get it.”
Crosby High School is a 130 place secondary school for pupils aged 11 to 16 who have moderate and /or complex special needs that are identified through their Education and Health Care Plan.
