St Bede's pupils club together to donate stationary and toothbrushes to Ugandan children
CHILDREN dressed in the colours of the Ugandan flag as part of a fundraising event inspired by a pupil’s mother.
The pupils at St Bede’s Primary School, in Popley, Basingstoke, were asked to donate stationery, toothpaste, toothbrushes, vests or socks to give to children in Uganda.
Year 6 pupil Holly Spreadbury helped to organise the day and the items were given to her mother to take to Uganda where she is working as a nurse for two weeks.
Headteacher Tony Murray said: “The pupils enjoyed the event and thought it was wonderful.
"It was incredibly colourful in school. Our children are quite used to fundraising activities and understand the importance of them.”
When Mrs Spreadbury returns from Uganda, she will visit St Bede’s to talk to pupils about her trip.
