Pupils at Someries Infant School took part in a readathon to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. The children decided to take part in the challenge after learning about charitable giving in their Religious Education lesson.
The year one group chose to raise money for the children’s charity because it had supported some of their peers. The group collectively rad just under 600 books over five days at home, with each child reading at least five books written by their favourite authors. They raised £1040 for the charity. Jennifer Meera, headteacher, said: “I am very proud of our year one children and families who have worked very hard to raise such a large amount of money for the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
“It really shows the caring attitude of everyone here at Someries.”
