Christmas Jumper Day 2019. Raising money for Save the Children.
There are 300 million children in the world for whom walking with shoes is a rarity. This makes them extremely vulnerable to infection by parasites, such as hookworm; while injuries to the feet and ankles can lead to ulcers and other conditions which are almost always left untreated. Without shoes, many children are not permitted to attend school. We were delighted to support Sal's Shoes. Crossing continents to make sure that your used, loved and outgrown children's shoes were delivered straight from you to those in need. Thank you to everyone for your kind donations- such a worthy cause!!
Fundraising for Marie Curie
An amazing £1338.80 was raised over the past number of months for Marie curie. The money was raised in memory of a very special person Cecilia Thompson who lost her battle with cancer earlier this year. Close friend Deborah Brown organised several events in school and amongst family and friends which accumulated to this fantastic total. WELL DONE DEBORAH! Cecilia's parents Norman and Shiela joined our assembly to help pupils Jamie and Bobby present the cheque to Grace from Marie Curie. Thank you to everyone who donated in any way, it all makes a big difference to the fantastic work of Marie Curie.
