Two Red Nose Day cake sales organised entirely by two girls in the infants and juniors raised nearly £400 for Comic Relief.
Six-year-old Abigail Sullivan and nine-year-old Bella Platt both – with some help from their parents – baked all the cakes for their sales and sold them to hungry friends at breaktime.
The girls’ stalls made £374 for Comic Relief, with donations made by children who paid to wear red to school creating a total of £518.53 – and counting!
Charity week total
Our junior school children also raised £800 for various causes during their annual charity week in February.
Their black and white parade (pictured), chocolate tombola, danceathon and prince and princesses’ parties all helped them reach their total to be donated to Blind Children UK, Agricultural and Rural Centre cic, the Christie and Clic Sargent.
Little Princess Trust hair donation
Two year five girls are donating their hair – rather than money – to the Little Princess Trust, who make wigs for children going through cancer treatment.
10-year-olds Talia Zelhof and Lily Amet will be having their locks cut on 18th April and were inspired by junior school headmaster Mr Tim Wheeler – the charity’s chair of trustees – who is running for the cause in this year’s London Marathon.
