School Council presents cheque to Focus on Africa

Posted on Friday, 10th November 2017 in Special Events

We were delighted to welcome Gill Martin to our celebration assembly this morning to collect a cheque on behalf of Focus On Africa.  The cheque for £242.40 was presented by representatives of this year’s School Council.  The money was raised through our Lenten fundraising project earlier this year where pupils in the school donated 20 pence for each tap and loo in their home, for each vegetable in their fridge and for each pair of shoes that they own over the four weeks of Lent.

Gill said ‘We are delighted to receive this cheque. It is enough money to pay for 60 malaria immunistions in the clinic Focus on Africa have founded in Kenya and so will genuinely save lives.’
