In memory of a true and loyal friend of more than 60 years
Mrs Ealona Thorpe
These donations are in recognition of John's life and his role as an inspiring teacher of Chemistry at Wolverhampton Grammar School when I was a student there from 1954 to 1961 and especially during my A-levels and Oxford entrance exams. His support paved the way for my career in Education that followed.
In later life I met up with John and Florence when I regularly visited my ageing parents in Wolverhampton between 2000 and 2010 and who were so welcoming when I had an hour or so to spare after finishing lunch to meet up at their house in Pennfields for a cup of tea and a chat.
