Money has just kept coming in from our fundraising efforts for Children in Need 2020! We are now finally ready to donate the incredible sum of £1814.65! With only 74 students, that means an average of £24.52 raised for every child at this rural school.
The charity extravaganza was on Friday 13 November and everyone at our school took part in a sponsored walk around the school field. Students had 30 minutes to do as many laps as possible and could choose to walk, run or skip their way round. Since some of the children still have quite little legs, the number of laps completed ranged from 9 to 21! Everyone was also encouraged to wear something spotty for Pudsey along with their school uniform.
Rachel Rood, Head of School, said "I am so proud of the whole school community for supporting our ramble so generously. For a small school to raise such a large amount is just phenomenal. The children showed such perseverance and resilience on the day and it was great to see them being so supportive of one another."
Year 6 pupil Molly Gray said, “We had to be determined because it was really muddy, but we kept going until our time was up, despite being tired, because we knew it was to help other children.”
