A big THANK YOU to Witham Hall Pupils who raised £237.25 for us as a result of an idea from one of our younger supporters Cecily Hopkins
May 22, 2015
This is an account written by one of the teachers at Witham Hall Preparatory School in Lincolnshire.
"At the beginning of the Lent Term, I asked my mentor group to come up with firstly a charity they would like to support and secondly how they would like to raise money for said Charity. Cecily Hopkins came up with a compelling proposition to raise money for a charity her mother works closely with;the BDHRA (Bedford District Handicapped Riders Association). The rest of the group were easily convinced by Cecily`s idea, as was I, so we took this forwward and came up with the idea of `guess the name` for a large stuffed pony. Once the list of names for the pony had been compiled with the help of my mentor group and the staff room, we started selling names for £2 a guesss. The support from the whole school was outstanding with children in every year group having a guess, along with parents, staff and governors. " Luckily somone guessed thecorrect name and got to take Magic home with them at the end of term.
Thank you Witham Hall and a special thanks to Cecily for proposing us!
