On the very last day of term (Thursday 28th March) we will be raising money for CLIC Sargent on the Bramble Ward at RD&E hospital.
We are doing this to give our support to our very own Jasmine Larkman in year 5, who is bravely battling leukaemia. This is her chosen charity, which will mean that we will not be supporting Comic Relief or Children in Need at school this year. We would rather divert all our fundraising to show Jasmine we are supporting and thinking about her in the next phase of her fight against cancer.
What we are doing: The Big Buzz!!
On the last day of term children are invited to come to school in non-uniform and with a crazy hairstyle or wig.
In return we ask that children collect sponsorship money. We are aiming to raise £600 which is £2 per pupil.
If this total is reached on the day then Mr Hitchcock (and other members of staff he can persuade!) will let the children loose with hair clippers/gel/dye on his hair and beard!
There are two ways to collect sponsorship. The preferred way (the cheapest and easiest for the charity) is online. Please donate at: www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/jasmine3
Otherwise, you can fill out the attached sponsorship, or send some money in on the day. If you choose to use the paper sponsorship form it is really important for your sponsors to fill out the form correctly with all of their details in order for us to claim gift aid: this can increase their donation by 25p for every £1 they donate.
This will be a fantastic day to show Jasmine we are right behind her!!
I’m so pleased and proud of the effort for Jasmine today – we are at QUADRUPLE our target and still counting past £2500!!!! AMAZING!
I got restyled twice as a result, the second time losing (nearly all of) my hair and beard!!!
Pictured below are the class winners, plus an amazing effort from Charlotte. Thanks to Mr Hasted for also volunteering to have a close trim!!!
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR DONATING – I think Jasmine felt very special today. Please contribute at this link if you haven’t already!!!
Please don’t be scared by the latest picture of me!!!
Welcome to year 1 and Mrs Merrett''s class!
