Lent Collection News
During Lent many of us are reminded once again to ask, ‘What can we do for others?’ We decided to let the children choose as a class which charity they would like to support and how they would like to raise some money.
We are now half way through our charity events and they are going really well with lots of money raised for some great charities. A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us!
