Lucy Swift, who is the deputy headteacher at St Mary Redcliffe Primary school in Bristol, emailed and told us about some terrific fundraising their children had been doing. They raised the fantastic total of £1229.15 for sports equipment.

Lucy said: “I just wanted to let you know about the fundraising event that we have just held for Child of Hope. All classes held sponsored events the week before half-term – these varied according to what each class wanted to do.

Early Years classes rode bikes all day; one year 1 class came to school in their pyjamas and one year 1 class held a dance-athon; year 2 timed how long it would take for each class to reach a thousand skips; one year 3 class did hula hooping and one year 3 class a danceathon; year 4 did obstacle laps around the playground; one year 5 class did a readathon and the other year 5 class had a run in their pyjamas; and lastly year 6 held a sponsored silence.

They presented Bex Okotel – one of our directors in Uganda – with the cheque when she visited the school last week. Thank you everyone at the school, what an awesome donation!
