Guide Dogs for the blind sponsored walk

Monday, May 15th, 2017

During their PSHE topic last term, Class 6 looked into raising money for a chosen charity, and decided to complete a sponsored walk in aid of Guide Dogs for the blind.

The pupils went out with their families to raise money during the Easter break, and we picked a lovely Friday afternoon in school to take them out to the scenic Elvaston Castle to complete their walk.

When the sponsorship money was collected in, Class 6 raised a whopping £415!

The organisation was so impressed with the donation, they sent volunteers in to the school to show their appreciation. Class 6 were able to see a Guide Dog in person, and understand the finances around training one.
