Fundraising for the homeless

Sunday, 8 December 2013

On Wednesday we hosted an afternoon of singing in order to raise money for Brushstrokes. All of the money we raised will go towards Christmas presents for homeless and deprived children who otherwise may not get anything this Christmas.

All of the children from Nursery through to Year 6 joined in and the children from Year 6 served tea, coffee, mince pie and biscuits to all of our visitors. As well as families of our children coming into school, there was also a number of visitors from the local area.

Well done to all of the children and thank you to Mrs Owen for organising the refreshments.

In total we managed to raise £154 plus £30 in presents. Children from year six will go to the Brushstrokes Christmas party next Sunday to help give out some of the presents that we have donated.

Thank you to everyone who came along and helped us to raise the money for this very worth while course.
