Sibford School Head Toby Spence is pictured with humanitarian, author and Quaker, Terry Waite.
The pair met at ChipLitFest 2018 in Chipping Norton where Terry was speaking at the opening event and promoting his latest book ‘Solitude’.
A sell-out audience listened as the former envoy to the Archbishop of Canterbury spoke about his five years as a hostage in Beirut and about his work with Hostage UK, an international organisation that supports the families of those taken captive in global hotspots.
Sibford School is a regular supporter of ChipLitFest and was pleased to sponsor the talk by Terry Waite. Other speakers taking part in the four-day festival included Richard Osman, Reggie Yates, Liza Tarbuck and Jeremy Vine.
