Children in Need 2018 at Shakespeare
Monday 12th November marked the start of this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal Week! Our school was excited to be joining in with others around the UK to participate in fundraising for disadvantaged children and young people.
School Council set up a Pudsey Shop every lunch time where they sold Pudsey ears and wristbands to the rest of the school. They also organised a fundraising event on Friday 16th November where they asked pupils and staff to come to school wearing spots and bring in a 50p donation. Children and staff wore all sorts of spots including handmade spotty t- shirts, spotty trousers and even a spotty shower cap- well done Mrs Fox!
All the hard work paid off when the money was counted. We were delighted to find out in Assembly that we had raised £595.82! A big thankyou to School Council and everyone at Shakespeare who donated to Children in Need.
