A Huge Thank you

Many thanks to all of our families for your wonderful generosity this  Advent. The disco, book sale and Christmas jumper day raised a fantastic £573.80 !!

This will go to Mission Together – whose motto is ‘Children helping children’

It will be used to help children who live in rural and isolated communities in parts of the developing world to have adequate health care and education.

Article 24

All Children have the right to the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help them stay well.

Article 27

All children have the right to food, clothing, a safe place to live and to have their basic needs met. They should not be disadvantaged so that they can’t do many of the things other kids can do.

Article 28

 All children  have the right to a good quality education. They should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level they can.

 

Many thanks once again.We could not do this without your support!
