School raises thousands for hospice
Kindhearted pupils and staff from St Margaret’s at Hasbury Primary School have raised more than £2,100 for Mary Stevens Hospice with a sponsored Reindeer Run.
During the day each class hunted for reindeers and took part in sponsored activities, with the school being overwhelmed by the generosity and support of families.
In addition, the school raised £600 for the Black Country Foodbank by making a donation instead of giving and receiving Christmas cards. The children each wrote a message of hope on paper baubles and put in on their class tree.
Sarah Shepherd, Headteacher at St Margaret’s at Hasbury Primary School, said:
Our school always works on the mantra of #kindness and we are very proud of our pupils for raising so much money to help others.
I would like to thank parents, staff and the wider school community for giving so generously to the charities, after what has been a very difficult year for many families.
Councillor Ruth Buttery, cabinet member for children’s services, said:
We are delighted to hear of so much money being raised to support of two great charities. Dudley borough is blessed with community spirited schools and I’m sure the work of those at St Margaret’s will help to spread some Christmas cheer.
