Fun and friendship at village school
Over �200 raised for Save the Children
FUN and friendship were on the menu at a village school as they raised cash for charity.
Barley School are regular supporters of Save the Children’s Friendship Funday. This year they expanded the day to a community event, which included maypole dancing, a procession and crowning ceremony for the May Queen, and an auction of art produced by the pupils.
Sandra Evans, Class three teacher at the school, said: “We had a wonderful afternoon. The children enjoyed performing for their parents who, as always, were very generous with their support”
Before the event the children heard from Sue Jagelman, school governor and Save the Children speaker, how the money they raised might be used by Save the Children and had fun seeing how many of them would fit under a mosquito net. These insecticide treated nets cost just �4 each and protect children from Malaria.
