Christian Aid Fundraising

Our school decided that we would raise money to help children in different parts of the world.  
We raised £1350 from our Christmas Nativity plays, Carol Service and our Christmas Jumper Day.
The School Council had great fun in the New Year choosing what to spend the money on.
Each class was allocated a share of the money and the pupils voted for what they would like to choose from Christian Aid.
In total we have bought 3 sets of piglets, 13 sheep, 10 chickens and 4 Nanny goats.  We have also chosen 5 sets of mosquito nets, 4 floating gardens and 3 sets of school bags with school equipment.  We have also paid for a Malaria Prevent Toolkit for school children, tougher tools to help farmers grow food and we have raised enough to send a child to school for a year.
We have learnt a lot about Christian Aid and the people in other countries that they help.
The School Council would like to thank all the pupils, parents and grandparents for their generosity to this really good cause.
Here they are with their certificate and some images of the items chosen:
