Youngsters raising money for charity

Posted onPosted on 9th Jul

Children, parents and staff at Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy raised £225.15 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust charity by wearing yellow clothes and making donations.

Sinead Purcell, office manager, said: “We decided to do this following a request by some of our parents. We were delighted to take part, to support the community and also raise awareness about cystic fibrosis.

“We have asked for voluntary donations and have been blown away by the generosity of our school community once again. Even parents were wearing yellow to drop children at school and one parent donated £50 following their own fundraising efforts.

“We want to thank everyone who supported us in this and special thanks to the children for wearing yellow and bringing the sunshine in to school on a rainy day.”

Pupil Oliver Bednarowicz (Year 2) said, “We are wearing yellow to raise some money for Cystic Fibrosis Trust. It is a good cause and my sister has cystic fibrosis. It can make you very sick and then you need medicine. My family have also done some walking to raise money as well. I hope we raise lots!”
