Staff at Leeds Education Service for Visually Impaired Children teamed up with Marks and Spencer to buy thousands of pounds worth of educational and sensory toy. The new library - part of the Department of Education Special Services Division, at the Bleinheim Centre, Crowther Place, Leeds - was officially named the Olivia Hargreaves Toy and Equipment Library.

Visually impaired Olivia, from Farsley, Leeds, died in July 1997.
