On Thursday 30th June, Year R and One held a Phase charity day. They decided to raise money for two very important children’s charities; Abbie’s Army and Demelza House.
Abbie’s Army is a children’s DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) brain tumour research charity, their aim is to Raise awareness, support for families and funding for specific DIPG research to help overturn its ‘terminal’ prognosis.
Demelza House provide hospice care for children and young people who have serious or terminal conditions and for their families, to receive support.
Both year groups shared a 2km sponsored walk. This was 10 laps around the edge of our school field. Every child took part and they could choose if they ran or walked around the circuit. For every lap completed they received a sticker to mark the lap. Children enjoyed the walk with many completing extra laps just for the fun of it!
Sponsorship money received across the phase totalled over £900.00. This will be split between the two children’s charities, Abbie’s Army and Demleza House. Years R and 1 would like to say a big ‘Thank you’ to all those who sponsored the children.
We are pleased to announce that Reception and Year 1 raised an amazing £1092.60 for their charities. This will be split evenly between Abbie’s Army and Demelza House.
