Fundraising for Christie’s

Every year in the Autumn term, our School Council chooses charities to support. These charities are chosen by the children, who have to give presentations to explain why their chosen charity should be supported. The Council then decide from this selection which charities they would like to  support for the coming year.

As one of their charities, last year’s School Council chose the Christie, the leading cancer hospital in Manchester. Last year we took part in a Spellathon and non-uniform days to raise money.

This week, Howard from the Christie came into school so we could present the money we have raised, which is a total of £1,515. He told Key Stage 2 all about the Christie’s current work on proton beam therapy, which is what the money we have raised will be going towards.

Thank you so much to everybody who supported our fundraising efforts last year, and who continue to support us this year. Well done, Oxford Grove!
