Sheffield pupil’s artwork unveiled as tribute to those who fell in Battle of the Somme

A fused glass art installation designed by Molly Meleady-Hanley has been unveiled at a war memorial by the Vice Lord-Lieutenant of South Yorkshire and the Lord Mayor of Sheffield. Molly, aged 13, a pupil at Mount St Mary’s College, created the artwork in memory of the pupils and school staff who fought and died in the Battle of the Somme in 1916. The striking tribute was inspired by the centenary of the battle and the forthcoming 175th anniversary of the school. The piece was unveiled in a special ceremony in front of the whole school and invited guests, including the Bishop of Hallam, Ralph Heskett, the Vice Lord-Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, John Holt and the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Denise Fox.
