As a school, we have been set the challenge by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) to raise £400 (over the school year) for equipment for the sensory room, currently being built at The Nook, in Framingham Earl.
Poringland Primary School has appointed a fundraising team of 7 responsible Y6s who will lead fundraising efforts, along with Mrs Hayes. On Monday 12th November, EACH staff spoke to the children in assembly, introducing The Nook and the work they hope to do there. We feel that it is important to make links with this local charity.
We aim to have 3 EACH fundraising projects over the year. The first will be in the first few weeks of January (date to be confirmed). It will be a Penny Mile. Children will be asked to bring in as much loose change as they can and the classes will lay it out in lines. There will be a small prize for the class who raise the most money and who makes the longest line. Start collecting change now!
