Children in Need
On the 15th November 2019, the whole of the UK participated in a range of fundraising events to raise for Children in Need.
Children in Need is a BBC charity organisation to raise money for disadvantaged children across the UK. Children in Need was first established in 1980, since then the charity has raised over one billion pounds!
This year, in order to encourage people to donate money towards Children in Need, popstars including Louis Tomlinson and the pop band Westlife sang live on BBC1. In addition to this, players from the England Football Team (including Captain Harry Kane) surprised children from the England Amputee Football Association and attempted to play football using crutches.
Our school also took part in a range of activities to raise money for Children in Need. They included:
• Cake Sale
• Pennies for Pudsey
• Miniature Golf
• Dance off
• Book Sale
• Throwing wet sponges at the Teachers
• Penalty shoot-out
• Year 6 Sponsored Silence
The whole of the UK raised a whopping £47million for the charity. As a school, we raised over £700- this is highest amount ever raised in school! The Year 6 Sponsored Silence was extremely successful, raising over £400. We would like to thank everybody who contributed.
