On Wednesday 11th November we had our morning Remembrance Assembly. Some of our children came to school in their brownie and cub uniforms. During the assembly we sang our Remembrance song, listened to the last post and held a minutes silence.
Today at Buckden CE Primary Academy we had an amazing day of fundraising. Our children dressed in green to show their support of Macmillan for a donation, our kitchen made biscuits that were sold at breaktime. Also our PTA held a coffee morning with lots of amazing cakes for our parents. It is important as a school that we support not only international and national fund raising projects but local ones too As
“Building the new £2.4million Macmillan Woodlands Centre will mean that all outpatient oncology services can be brought back together at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, in one state-of-the-art building. It will mean more choice for local people, providing treatment on their doorstep instead of making long journeys to other centres when unwell”. A big thank you to all our families for their fantastic support for this cause to date we raised over £370.
Update: We are very proud that this article went out to 1712 employees of Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust, Well done to all those involved.
|Local school raises more than £370 for Woodlands Centre|
Last month Buckden CE Primary Academy held a Macmillan Coffee morning, raising more than £370 for our Macmillan Woodlands Centre Appeal.
As part of the morning the children all dressed in green to show their support of Macmillan and the school kitchen made a delicious selection of biscuits that were sold during break times. Parents joined in with the fundraising, holding a coffee morning organised by the parent teacher association (PTA).
PTA representative and Hinchingbrooke Head of Medical Records/Information Governance Lead Kim Graves said: “It is important as a school that we support not only international and national fundraising projects but local ones too. Building the new £2.4million Macmillan Woodlands Centre will mean that all outpatient oncology services can be brought back together at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, in one state-of-the-art building, meaning more choice for local people.”
