Pupils jump to it to raise money for children’s charity
Pupils have taken part in a sponsored skipping marathon in aid of the NSPCC.
The pupils spent a day traversing the Primrose Hill school classroom and grounds while jumping over skipping ropes – all in the name of charity.
Their efforts raised £1,633.82 for the NSPCC children’s charity. The money raised by pupils will fund the equivalent of 326 phone calls to Childline, a telephone counselling service for children and young people.
Jo Bowker, the NSPCC’s Schools Organiser for Speak Out, Stay Safe, Lancashire, visited the school for a special assembly to thank the Olive School pupils and to collect the donation. Jo was accompanied by the charity’s mascot, Buddy the speech bubble, who encourages children to ‘Speak Out and Stay Safe’.
“Thanks to the hard work of all the pupils at The Olive School, Preston we will be able to reach more children than ever before. The enthusiasm of the children to help others is really great to see, particularly as the money they worked so hard to raise will benefit those who might not have had the positive childhood they deserve.”
Principal Dawn Forshaw said:
“The children really wanted to raise money for the NSPCC and we are so proud of them for raising such a fantastic amount. They have really reflected our Star value of ‘Service’ by being responsible citizens in our community’.”
PUPILS, including Isa Ahmed and Khadijah Abid Aliat (pictured with Jo Bowker), have raised £1,633.82 for the NSPCC.
