We normal do a sponsored family walk in September each which is really popular and helps us raise much needed funds for resources we need to support specific learning initiatives for the children. This years Covid restriction meant we could not hold this annual event.
We decided that for this years fund raiser we would ask families for their ideas how we could raise funds and as we had so many excellent ideas we decided to let the children and families all do their own individual fund raisers.
We had a fantastic response with family raising funds for us in some many different and Covid safe ways. We had sponsored walks and cycles, sales of arts and crafts and home baking to family members and even a sponsored silence. Some families decided not to do a sponsor but donated instead.
We received a total of £881.30 which meant all the children received and extra special Christmas gift this year.
The staff held a raffle for family and friends and raised a further £145 which was used to buy outdoor trees and decorations for Christmas.
