Congratulations to schoolchildren in Ruddington, who have been busy raising funds and donating items for a range of charities.
In the lead up to Christmas, children at St Peter’s Junior School raised £213.40 by doing chores at home, and donated 195 teddies and 142 pairs of shoes to be sent to Uganda. Meanwhile, James Peacock Infant School – who are spearheading the appeal – added £67.50 to the funds with a ‘Guess the number of teddies in the car’ competition.
St Peter’s also took part in the shoe box initiative for the Operation Christmas Child appeal. A staggering 132 boxes, containing toys, stationery, toiletries, hats, scarves and gloves were brought into school and have been sent to children in need overseas.
The school has also linked up with the Care for Calais appeal to send warm winter clothes to refugees in the French port, with children donating trousers, coats, hats, scarves and gloves.
Well done to all involved!
