Pupils moved to raise funds
Published on: 29 Jan 2018
CHILDREN at Barley Close Community Primary School were moved by a national newspaper story about a nine-year-old boy who just wanted a home for Christmas.
Head teacher Jo Williams said: "Having read the story they wanted to help. They arranged a sponsored Christmas jumper wearing day and a raffle to raise money for Shelter. In total they raised £283.14.
"We are incredibly proud of them."
To raise awareness, the Year 6 pupils also wrote poems and displayed them around school.
