This week we have heard from The Royal British Legion and from Pudsey Bear. Selling the poppies raised £81.38 and ‘Dressing up Spotty for £1’ raised £188.45. A very big thank you to you all for sending in your donations and supporting such worthy charities.
So far, the School has supported the following causes.........
We are very pleased to announce that we reached our £300 target for The Guide Dogs. We are now waiting to hear what happens next. Thank you to everyone that helped raise money for this very worthy cause.
MASSIVE congratulations to Mrs Fox who completed the London Marathon on Sunday in 4 hours 55 minutes.
She has been to see all the children in their classes, this week, to show them her medal, talk about the race and answer any questions. She would like to pass on a huge thank you for all the support St Mary’s families have
shown her in the build up to the race and she has been blown away be the generosity of you all.
The children helped Mrs Fox raised over £250.00, on Friday, for The Multiple Sclerosis Centre in Letchworth.
She will let us know soon how much she raised overall. What an achievement!
The Children enjoyed the visit from the NSPCC and were proud
to have raised £159.00 for this very worthwhile charity.
It was great to see everyone joining in to support Comic Relief and I am very proud of the way the children
are becoming so aware of the need and importance of helping others. This is fitting in very well with our Value
of Compassion and it is lovely for me to be giving out so many ‘Compassion Awards’ in assembly.
November 2016 Children in Need
The children had a great time supporting BBC Children in Need by wearing non-uniform for a donation of £1.00. We were very lucky to get a visit from Pudsey Bear himself who visited each class to collect the donations.
November 2016 Poppy Appeal
We raised £57.33 for the Royal British Legion by selling poppies.
