Respite centre in Sheffield set to unveil new sensory room

Have your say

A respite centre in Sheffield is introducing a new sensory room to its facilities.

Amy’s House in Handsworth was set up in 2003 for children with special needs.

Founders Maurice and Meriel Littlewood launched the centre in memory of their granddaughter Amy, who died of meningitis in 1999.

Their other granddaughter Molly was born with severe special needs and died two years after Amy.

An open day is to be held at the centre - in Ballifield Primary School, Handsworth - on August 2.

The new sensory room will be on display.
