Visually impaired students go on tour

Move over, Stevie Wonder - five visually impaired pupils from Luton's Chantry Primary School are performing music concerts at local schools, to raise much-needed cash to buy a minibus. The children, two of which are completely blind, perform digital music created through loops, which the youngsters then play along to on their keyboards or drum pads. Each school hosting the concert are asked to make a donation to watch the show.

On Wednesday the visual impairment provision at the Tomlinson Avenue school showed off their talents at Ferrars Junior School. Both Crawley Green Infants and Whitefield Junior School have also hosted shows and donated to the cause.

It is hoped that the minibus will enable all visually impaired children from the provision to visit museums and places of interest, as well as allow them to take part in activities as horse riding and picnics in the summer. If you would like to see these talented children play at your school, call Bianca Spiteri at Chantry Primary School on 01582 706500
