School raises £1,100 for charity

Pupils swapped their uniform for bright pink clothing and raised £1,100 for charity at a Wear It Pink day at Vickerstown Primary School and Brambles Nursery.

They made a £1 donation to wear their own clothes and there was also a cake and treats sale, including creatively decorated digestive biscuits, as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The event was organised by Leah Sanderson, a childcare assistant at Brambles Nursery, who also ran a raffle to help raise vital funds for research into the disease.

“I am overwhelmed with the amount we have raised,” she said. “The breast cancer charity means a lot to me and my family and I honestly am so grateful for all the support and donations. A massive thank you to everyone, it is really appreciated.”

Raffle prizes were donated by businesses including Soul Bowl, Jump Rush, The Diamond, Salvana’s, Tailors Bar and Lounge, The Ferry, Pea Oui & Co, AJ’s Bistro, Smiler’s Café , The King Alfred , Priory Plaice and Bluebell & Ivy.
