Kids have Children in Need-themed fun to raise money for most vulnerable
19 November 2020
Pupils at Windermere School were among those to celebrate Children in Need on Friday – with children swapping their uniforms for pyjamas to raise money for charity.
All children at the junior school were invited to take part in the non-uniform day and make a £1 donation to the BBC’s charity, which supports the UK’s most-vulnerable children, in the process.
The clothing switch was the brainchild of Year 6 pupils, who approached Julie King, head of the school’s Elleray campus, to ask for permission to hold a socially-distanced fundraiser.
Mrs King said: “Children in Need is important every year but doubly so this year.
“I am so incredibly proud of how the Year 6 pupils rose to the challenge, they have shown real creativity at a time of national need.
“They have worked together to create activities which appeal across the age range of pupils at Elleray.
“We are delighted that they have raised over £200 to support this much-loved national charity.”
