Holy Trinity School are fab fundraisers!

Your fundraising stories

On Tuesday 17th June Louise, was invited to attend an assembly at Holy Trinity School in Wimbledon to meet the pupils who have been fundraising for First Touch and to collect a cheque. Louise and the pupils were thrilled when the Headteacher, Nicola Morgan announced that the variety of fundraising initiaves held during Lent.they had raised a massive £6,400 for First Touch.

First Touch was nominated to be the school's charity by Corrine John who has a daughter at the school and who sadly lost her baby daughter Kayda-Grae, who was born very prematurely and was cared for on St George's nnu.

Here Corrine tells us about the various ways the money was raised:

Coin Trail - each class competed to create the longest trail of pennies. This raised over an impressive £400

Table Top Sale - the children "bought pitches" to sell their used & nearly new toys, games & books, home baked cakes and cookies, sweetie packs and more! This was a sell-out success raising almost £1,000 in less than two hours!!

Sponsored Events - each class held a sponsored event ranging from pyjama wearing fun runs to dodgeball tournaments

Cake Sales - always a hit when fundraising, these 'Friday specials' raised hundreds of pounds during Lent

Lent Lunches - the teachers raised £200 paying over the odds for yummy lunches in aid of First Touch

Easter Egg Raffle - keen to win Easter eggs (donated by the lovely teachers) the pupils and parents kindly bought raffle tickets in the hope of being one of the lucky winners

Move Over JK Rowling - a year 4 pupil wrote a book which her dad 'published' to be sold raising a well earned £75.

We are very grateful to Corrine for nominating us and to all the staff, pupils and parents at Holy Trinity for their energy, enthusiasm and support.
