Holly Grove worker will attempt to walk to the summit of Pendle Hill 13 times in 24 hours
A special school worker will attempt to walk to the summit of Pendle Hill 13 times in 24 hours in honour of all the school’s special pupils.
Holly Grove's inclusion manager Connor Moffatt will attempt the challenge to raise money to help improve the experiences of the school’s pupils.
Katie Wood, who works at the school in Barden Lane, said: “Connor would like to raise money in honour of all Holly Grove pupils past and present, with all proceeds going towards the school charity, The Georgia Fourie Butterfly Fund, which will fund an immersive room named after him.
"hThis room will provide experiences and opportunities for children with complex needs to support their engagement and interaction within a calm and stimulating environment.”

The Georgia Fourie Butterfly Fund is a registered charity, set up in memory of another treasured former pupil, and raises money to improve and enhance the lives of the school’s wonderful pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities.
The school itself is the only primary school in Burnley catering for the special needs of children with generic learning difficulties.
The fund-raiser is the latest from a member of staff attempting tough challenges. Last June, a family support manager at Holly Grove put his best feet forward and walked 50 miles in 24 hours to celebrate his 50th birthday to raise money for the school’s Georgia Fourie Butterfly Fund.
Nick Barrett set off from his home in Waterfoot at 4am before heading to Cliviger, Worsthorne, Colne, Gisburn, Chatburn, Clitheroe, Whalley, Simonstone, Padiham and Hapton before finishing his walk in Rawtenstall.
