The global pharmaceutical foundation Leo Pharma has kindly sponsored a lion cub sculpture for Forest Bridge School, a specialist school for children with autism in Maidenhead.

Staff and pupils are looking forward to decorating their cub, which will be displayed in pride of place in Maidenhead from 10th August.

Forest Bridge School is a Special Free School for children and young people with a primary diagnosis of autism. The  school opened in September 2015 and currently caters for a maximum of 62 pupils between the ages of 4 and 16 years. When the school has moved to its permanent site at Braywick, which they hope will be in September 2019, it will cater for a maximum of 96 pupils.
