A science lesson at Elms Bank


Fundraising for Adam Foster's 'Garden of Reflection'

Adam Foster was a one in a million teacher at Elms Bank School. He sadly lost his battle with cancer in September 2020, aged just 46 years old.

We are fundraising to create a Garden of Reflection in his memory at the school.  This garden will be a peaceful place where pupils, staff and his family can sit and remember Adam and other colleagues and pupils we have sadly lost over the years.

Adam will be remembered for many things; from his bow ties and Doc Martins, to his love of all things technical and his rocket fuel strength coffee!

We are asking people who knew him, taught alongside him or were taught by him, to donate the price of a cup of coffee (suggestion £2.50) towards the cost of the garden. We hope to create a garden that honours his memory and the impact he had on the staff and pupils of Elms Bank.

If you would like to donate towards the creation of the Garden of Reflection then please follow the link to the Just Giving page.


There will be lots more fundraising events taking place this year for the Garden of Reflection: - from a plant sale in May, to sponsored walks, virtual competitions and a fun bow tie and braces day later this year!
