Thank you for everyone who helped us raise money for Comic Relief. In total we raised £720. As always half the money will go to Comic Relief and the other half to our home charity, which this year is the Sunderland Food Bank .
We are still taking food donations for the Food Bank trolley, so if you have any items you could donate then please send them into school with your child.
We are celebrating Comic Relief 2021 on Friday 19th March.

The children applying face paints to Mr Williams.
On Friday 15th November we celebrated Children in Need and made a great effort with our fundraising. We had a range of activities in school on the day such as a cake sale, face paints and the children being able to wear their own clothes for a donation. As well as this we had games going on in the hall throughout the day where children had the opportunity to win prizes. In total we raised £932.62 which is a fantastic effort and we should all be very proud.
Children in Need 2018
Children in Need 2018 was a great success with the school raising £947.25! Children wore their own clothes for a donation of £1 and donated cakes which were sold on the day for 50p. Along with this we had activities going on during the day in the school hall along with face paints. Of the money raised half was donated to children in need and the other half going to our home charity this year Alzheimer’s Society.
Well done everyone.
We raised money in a number of different ways including a cake sale.
