Cheryl with two of the children and the giant cheque for £600.
Cheryl Baker from Bucks Fizz, our new patron, went along to the Kingswood Educational Centre in Ashford, Kent to meet some very special children from the Brightstone School on the Isle of Wight.
The twenty 9 year old pupils from Class 4 had all been given £1 each to find ways to raise as much money as they could. Cheryl spent ages talking to each one of the pupils to discover what they did.
Some bought a sponge and
bucket and cleaned cars, some did washing up duties, others walked dogs or
did a variety of household and garden duties.
We were really amazed to learn that they had raised £600 for our charity and
were delighted when they presented the cheque to Cheryl. She then posed for
photographs with each of the children and signed autographs.
They are certainly an amazing group of children and we are extremely
grateful to them for all their hard work and support for our Memorial.
