Children at St Wilfrid’s CE School, Haywards Heath, responded brilliantly to a challenge to raise money for the NSPCC.
The children were inspired and moved to support the NSPCC after a visit from Emily Bradbury, an NSPCC Schools’ Organiser. The children voted to do a KeepyUppy Challenge using a variety of sports’ equipment and raised an incredible £5734.08 for the charity.
Emily was completely amazed at the wonderful enthusiasm of the children and their compassion for less fortunate children. Emily said,“They should feel very proud that their hard work will make a significant difference to the lives of vulnerable and abused children.” Emily is pictured with our School Councillors.
Here are some of the thoughts of the children on the event:
“We hope that our money will help the NSPCC and children in need.” (Peter)
“We gave our money to you and hope it will get loads of children better. “(Noah)
“Our teacher is very proud of our hard work and we hope you are too. “(Daisy)
“We understand how much the NSPCC means to children.” (Reuben)
“We were amazed when we heard how much money we raised!” (Izzy)
