Christmas Displays 2020 based on Christmas Stories
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I was blown away by the generosity of our families this week we have been absolutely inundated with cakes for our MacMillan Cake Day - October 2020, so much so we have donated 200 individual cakes to Todmorden High School's Macmillan Coffee Morning (these will be sold to the Tod High students and it will all go to the same charity!).
We managed to raise an amazing £238.09!
Thank you so much for all your kind donations.
On the last day of term, we enjoyed all getting together for our Christingle Service where we thought about Jesus - The Light of the World.

Helping others in Lent
During Lent, which runs from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, we are reminded once again to ask, ‘What can we do for to help others?’
Our children decided that our Lent charity this year would be Dementia UK. Many of our children, at Christmas, were involved in the ‘Dementia Friendly Todmorden’ event at St. Mary’s and many also sang at our local care home, Asquith Hall. These events touched many children’s hearts and they decided they would like to give more.
The children planned and ran class charity events all the way through Lent. These events included a chocolate and teddy tombola, a sponsored walk, bounce and climb, a loose change challenge, a bake sale and other events.
We raised an amazing £4,113.84 for Dementia UK!
