Children in Need 2020: Pudsey goes cashless!
It’s that time of year again when we at Church Hill C of E Junior School make a tremendous effort to raise money for Children in Need. The children can do this in several ways:
Children in Need will be fundraising on the week commencing Monday 9th November with the main fundraising day happening on Friday 13th November. The first and easiest way to take part is the schools non uniform day. There is no official dress-up theme this year, so we are simply calling it a ‘non-uniform’ day where the children are welcome to arrive in their own clothes (Children in Need clothing is welcomed but not essential). A suggested donation of £2 can be made via Parentpay (please note, we are unable to accept cash donations this year).
In addition to this, we will also be selling Children in Need merchandise. We will be selling the following items:
- Medium Pudsey cuddly bear - £5
- Pudsey wire pin badges - £1
- Pudsey fun blush yellow pin badges - £1
- Pudsey fun blush brown pin badges - £1
- Pudsey wristbands - £1
These items are available to purchase immediately and can all be purchased via ParentPay.
These will be delivered to the child within 48 hours of purchasing. Please note that there are a limited number of these items and will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. If they are showing as available on Parentpay then they will be in stock.
As well as the fundraising, Children in Need are running the ‘Five to Thrive’ campaign throughout the fundraising week. Here, Children in Need are focusing in on children’s mental health after the recent Coronavirus pandemic and the effects it may have had on the children. ‘Five to Thrive’ is a new unique programme of wellbeing activities inspired by the 5 ways to wellbeing, to help children feel happier and healthier this year. This programme is lead by Joe Wicks, Dr Radha and Blue Peter. Please see the timetable below to see what the children will be taking part in throughout the appeal week.
Finally, I would like to thank you for your continued support. Last year, we managed to raise a staggering £926.85 – a record total here at Church Hill. To give you an idea to where the money goes:
Just £5 means a 13 year old boy is able to meet with a youth worker and confide about his difficult home life for the first time,
£10 means a shy 11 year old girl affected by poverty can have weekly support from a mentor who helps her uncover new skills and believe in herself,
£40 means a 4 year old girl who is undergoing aggressive cancer treatment can enjoy a day out with her family and others who are in the same situation, allowing them to share their experiences, have fun and a much-needed break,
£50 pays for a 14 year old girl to attend bereavement counselling after her dad's suicide.
We would like to thank all Church Hill CofE Junior families for their continuing support in our worthy causes.
