School Charities Day

On Friday 24th March we held our very first Leckhampton School Charities Day.  The School Council members masterminded this fabulous idea and worked hard creating posters to publicise the event.  We were delighted that Sarah James (James Hopkins Trust) and Liz Thatcher (Winston’s Wish) were able to join us in Assembly on this special day to tell us about their fabulous charities.  The whole school listened very carefully and we were all moved by the fabulous work that both charities do.

The children’s outfits (inspired by the initial letters of our two school charities – W, J, H and T) were simply magnificent.  We had witches, werewolves, a jelly, jockeys, a jet, a Mrs Head, a tourist and a Twister game board to name but a few!  Our families were very generous with their donations for wearing non-uniform which was a super start to our day of fundraising.

After school we held the biggest cake sale that Leckhamton primary school had ever seen.  With an incredible array of cakes donated by our fabulous families, the crowds flocked to the hall to support the sale.  After a busy, bustling half hour, we were left with just a single slice of carrot cake and a single slice of sponge cake!  Well done to the School Council members who came along to help with the sale.

So it is with great pleasure that I announce the total raised on the day – an incredible £1133.54!!  We were all absolutely over the moon.  A huge thank you to everyone for their contributions (of money and cake!) and another huge thank you to my School Council for all their hard work.
