A BOROUGH pre-school held a charity fundraising day to support Marie Curie Hospice.
Various events took place to raise money in support of the hospice which is Eversfield Preparatory School’s chosen charity this year.
Youngsters brought in cakes which were sold at morning break and in the afternoon all at the school participated in a sponsored event.
All children – aged from three to six-years-old – walked around the school grounds, swam in the pool and completed a circuit programme set up by games staff.
The younger children cheered as they watched
In the evening the school held an Eversfield’s Got Talent Competition to raise further funds.
Every September, Eversfield School Council – made up of elected children from years two to six – select a charity which the school will support for the whole academic year.
Last year the school raised over £13,000 and hope that they will collect a similar amount this year.
Robert Yates, headmaster at Eversfield said: “We believe in a happy, caring school, with a strong sense of community.
“Our children understand that they can make a huge difference to the lives of people who need a little help.
“I am so proud of the way the whole school comes together to enable us to make that difference.”
