SPONSORED WALK AND JUST GIVING FOR BAILEY-MAY RAISES £3618.11 FOR BRISTOL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL PLAY THERAPY.
At St John's Catholic Primary School, our learning is underpinned by Catholic Social Teaching. It is embedded in everthing we do and the main premise is to enable children to make a difference and take action. Many of the fundraising activities that go on throughout the year are led by the children themselves and they take great pride in being able to support those in need.
Earlier on this year, Bailey in Year 6 was diagnosed with a benign brain tumour which was removed during surgery. Bailey's treatment and recovery was at Bristol Children's Hospital and the play therapy she experienced during rehabilitation was invaluble.
Upon returning to school in September, Bailey and her friends were very keen to carry out a fundraiser to raise money for the charity responsible for the play therapy. They decided to organise a sponsored run which took place in October. The sponsored run involved the whole school and this, along with the Just Giving page set up by Bailey's family, raised an incredible £3618.11.
The money raised will be presented in the new year to the charity so watch this space for updates.
