Children hand over fundraising cheque to Candlelighters

Thank you to everyone who helped our children raise £1,360 for our charity of the year, Candlelighters, which helps children with cancer and their families.

The money was raised thanks to the generosity of parents who supported Year 5’s bike ride along the solar path in York, and contributed to collections at school events.

Becki Marren, Senior Regional Fundraiser with the Leeds-based charity, said: “We are so incredibly grateful to the children at Terrington Hall School. They should all be so proud of themselves for raising an incredible £1,311, which could fund activities on the ward for a whole year, helping to take patients minds off their surroundings and situation by having fun.

“This kind of support is what enables us to continue to be there for families for as long as they need us, we are so lucky to have your support. Thank you for making a difference.”

All the thoughtful details that you see throughout the school and in the staff, that individually could by considered small, quickly add up to something utterly wonderful.
