Charley Bear from East Anglia's Children's Hospice launches our Christmas fund-raising.

This afternoon we had a visit from East Anglia’s Children Hospice (EACH). School council introduced Jo and explained that as a school council, we had chosen to support a local children’s charity. 

Jo introduced Charley bear who was able to tell the children about the hospice and all that they do.

The letters in Charley’s name spelt out seven key areas of work that the hospices do with the children.

·             Care
·        Hospices
·        All around
·        Raising money
·        Love and laughter
·        Everybody
·        You

Can you remember what they all mean and how the hospice helps less fortunate families with poorly children? 

We hope to raise as much money as we can for this worthwhile cause.  There will be retiring collections at the Nativity performances on the 12th and 13th December and also after the Carol service on the 17th December.

Additionally, the Christmas jumper day on 18th December, when we have our Christmas dinner, we are asking for pupils to make a donation in aid of EACH when they wear their own Christmas jumper.
