Des Donates St Bede's Uniform To Foundation Archives

Des Fox visited Princethorpe to donate his old school uniform to the Archives.

Over the Easter holidays, the Foundation was delighted to welcome Desmond Fox to Princethorpe. Des was a former pupil of St Bede’s, a legacy school within the Princethorpe Foundation, and he very kindly visited the College this April to donate his old school uniform and his school report to the archives.

Archivist, Catherine Lewis was thrilled to welcome Des, who first attended St Bede’s in 1967, and to show him the photographs, prospectuses and registers that we hold for St Bede’s. Des was excited to look through the archive material and was even able to name some of the people in the old photographs.

Des shared some of his own photographs of him with his mother and his uncle wearing his school uniform and even a very cute shot of his grandson wearing his old school uniform prior to its donation.

The Foundation is always pleased to receive donations to it archives and if you have material you would like to share then please do contact our archivist Catherine on catherinelewis@princethorpe.co.uk.
