Pledging Our Support for Children in Need

Pledging Our Support for Children in Need

Today, children and school staff around the country are taking part in a range of fun activities to raise money for Children in Need. The charity works to ensure that every child in the UK has a safe, happy, and secure childhood. They use the donations to fund their work and provide grants to organisations for projects that help disadvantaged children and young people all over the country.

Since hitting the airwaves of the BBC in 1980, Children in Need has helped raise over £950 million to help disadvantaged young people in the UK. Schools play a huge part in helping to raise money and supporting the event.

We are having a non-school uniform day to raise money for this special charity. The children will be dressing in bright, spotty clothing like Pudsey Bear. The children will also be taking part in a whole school assembly to find out about this special charity and what their money is used for. 2S will be holding a cake sale after school on the Friday to raise some extra money.

At The Manor CofE VC Primary School, we view Children in Need as a great platform to teach our students how to be charitable and kind, and about the importance of helping others. Learning the significance of these values will help to develop lasting habits that will be practised in adult life.

We are always so grateful to our parents/carers for their kindness and generosity during these fundraising events. The children love taking part and it is always so wonderful to see them all making an effort with their spotty outfits!
