Pupils shine bright for charity

Staff and pupils from Newnham Primary School came to school wearing bright clothing to raise money for Marie Curie.

As part of the charities mini pots of care project, children learnt about science and nature whilst raising money to help people with terminal illness. Pupils planted bulbs before Christmas and have been charting their growth and collecting sponsors for each millimetre of height.

Pupils also brought in money to wear bright clothes instead of their usual school uniforms.

Kim Cresswell , Headteacher, said: “We have had so many donations and we are so thankful to the parents and children for all their support. The money raised will really make a difference and so you should all feel very proud.”

The school raised a grand total of £696 for the charity.

Kim added: “We are only a small school and so this really is an outstanding total. It reflects the generosity and kindness of the pupils here at Newnham.”
