Two classes decided to do some of their own charity work ahead of the big event. 3C decided they wanted to support Zoe’s Place. They ran a stall at lunch time and managed to raise £266.46! Jane McGaffney came along to accept the money and tell the children about the work carried out at Zoe’s Place explaining how the money would help by supporting a nurse for 25 hours of care. 4C decided they wanted to support Birmingham Childrens Hospital. They too ran a stall and sold cakes and biscuits brought in from home and managed to raise a further £270.Tanita Mistry, Hospital Fundraiser, came in to school to accept the donation. Not to be outdone Miss Emily Hughes, Assistant Headteacher, recently took part in the Birmingham Half Marathon in aid of Age UK Solihull. Miss Hughes said “Thank you so much for your support and generosity to help raise funds for Solihull Age UK. I completed Birmingham Half Marathon in 2 hours 29 minutes so was thrilled”. “I’ve raised £673.10 so far (over £800 with Gift Aid) and my page is still open if anyone who still wants to give: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/EmilyHughes21” Howard Rose, Funding & Publicity Manager said, “The children were so excited to see Pudsey Bear as it was a complete surprise. The children, and staff, are always keen to support such great local charities, having someone come in to collect the money and tell the children how their money helps makes a real difference.”
