PUPILS cheered football legend Dennis Wise when he presented Spalding’s Priory School with the first brand new minibus out of 100 which his charity hopes to hand out.

The former Chelsea and England player together with his old friend, company director Steve Frankham, have raised more than £650,000 together for children’s charities over the years.

They chose The Priory School to launch the new Dennis Wise in the Community minibus initiative.

Headteacher Daran Bland said: “We’re absolutely delighted with this hugely generous offer. As a special school we invest a lot of effort in getting pupils out of the classroom and into the community so it’s just what we needed.

“We were all also thrilled that Dennis and Steve came personally to present it.”
