PUPILS and staff at Salisbury’s Chafyn Grove have raised nearly £2,000 for a children’s hospice for youngsters in Wiltshire and Dorset.
The school selected Julia’s House as its charity of the term and the educational community held a series of events to collect funds to benefit the life-limited children and their families helped by the hospice.
A special celebration for the school’s centenary in September 2016 helped to generate £1,650 – split equally between Julia’s House and Macmillan Cancer Support – while other highlights included a chess challenge and mince pie sale, which together raised almost £500.
The school’s generosity resulted in Julia’s House receiving a cheque for £1,923.17 (pictured above).
