At 1.30pm Year 6 children from St Chrysostom’s and St John’s schools with teachers and other adults met to run a 1km circuit around the park. They did it easily. Many decided to do another1km. It was a lovely meeting of the two classes, and great to see their teachers joining in so enthusiastically. As one of the head teachers commented it was clear all ‘had a great afternoon.’
The children and teachers raised over £700 for Mary’s Meals, our charity for May – Mary’s (Mariam’s) month. We are supported in this in our community by Church, Schools and others. Thank you to the children and all who supported. A very special thank you must go to Ibrahim, Year 6, of St Chrysostom’s School who raised an amazing £418.50.
Shabaz from St John’s School, who has recently been very poorly raised £40. Every 20p raised was very welcome and as the children will tell you 20p given to Mary’s meals gives a child in Malawi a week’s school dinners. (This means today we raised enough money to give about 100 children free school meals for a year)
