Year 7 Fundraising
Year 7's have raised over £25,000 for the British Heart foundation
Earlier this term year 7 pupils carried out fundraising to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, This is an annual event, and one that pupils have been supporting for many years by running a skipathon event.
Sarah Standing the local representative for the British Heart Foundation had this to say "Please could you pass on my sincere thanks and appreciation to the team who host this every year. I have attached a thank you certificate for this year’s students, but have also added this donation to the running total so your overall amount now £26,570. This is truly phenomenal."
The work of the British Heart Foundation, now means that four in five babies born with heart problems get the chance to go to school. This figure used to be only one in five babies with heart problems survived more than a year.
Congratulations to all year 7's who took part.
