Children in Year 6 visited our Parish Church in Ledsham on Friday to take part in a special service of thanksgiving for the life and work of Lady Elizabeth Hastings (1682 - 1739). The Archbishop of York and Directors of the Lady Elizabeth Charities spoke about the love Lady Betty had for all people; her devotion to charity, her kindness, her generosity of spirit, her empathy and selfless wisdom.
Since Lady Betty set up a Trust Deed providing for the establishment of the Lady Elizabeth Hasting's Charities in 1739, tens of thousands of people have received grants that have enriched their lives. Children and families from our school have also benefited and will continue to do so in the future. It was a great honour to sit in the same pews in the same Church as Lady Betty did and give thanks to God for the life and work of this amazing lady; she died 278 years ago but her legacy still lives on.
