Over the past year, we have raised over £5,000 - thank you to everyone who supported us!
In July, we officially launched our year long charity campaign- 'Remember Morgan'.
Events began with our 'Federation Sport's Day and picnic' and we received some very generous donations from:
Summit Electrical – donated and fitted the electrical sockets for the 'Remember Morgan' frames;
Clifts – donated a Gazebo for the launch day;
Rachael in Y5 was busy making cakes to sell for donations;
Jimmy raised £17 selling bits and pieces in the hall;
Bella involved her family over Christmas and raised £35;
Cody raised over £15 by holding a raffle she produced herself;
Parents/Grandparents/Carers – well where do we start?! We have had lots of help making ribbons, headbands have been crocheted, offers of help with serving refreshments at the launch and balloons were donated;
Federation Caretakers– designed and made the frames that the remembrance stars which now hang in each school's reception area. They are gorgeous! This has been added to by the wonderfully talented Mrs. Walton who has added the final touch!
McDonald's - Mrs Cottam arranged for them to hold a fundraising weekend in June 2016 and they raised funds that went directly to 'The Swing'. Hopefully, they will be taking part in more fundraising for us.
If you have a creative talent that you would like to showcase – You can make anything (as long as it’s pink!!) to be sold to raise money for 'Remember Morgan' which will be donated to 'The Swing', Walsall Bereavement Service.
Don’t forget that our 'Remember Morgan' awareness and fundraising campaign is running until May 2017, which would have been Morgan’s 16th birthday, so anything that you make or donate will be used or sold and WILL make a massive difference to children and families that need and use 'The Swing'.
November 2016 - Thank you for supporting our Children in Need events! At the time of writing we had counted almost £200 in donations for Children in Need WELL DONE EVERYONE - especially to the children (and families) who baked cakes and held a raffle to help raise money.
In the spring of 1915, shortly after losing a friend in Ypres, a Canadian doctor, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields to write a now famous poem called 'In Flanders Fields'. After the First World War, the poppy was adopted as a symbol of Remembrance. We thank you for supporting the Poppy appeal this year, at Short Heath.
October 2016 - Thank you for all your very generous contributions that will be donated to our local Foodbank. Well done Year 4 for a lovely service. We really appreciate your support.
