SCHOOLS across Melksham have shown their support for Children in Need this year, by dressing up and organising various events to raise money last Friday, 19th November.
At St Mary’s School in Broughton Gifford, pupils and staff came to school in fancy dress and created their very own Pudsey Bear, made out of coins. Assistant principal, Aaron Laws, explains “As part of our fundraising for Children in Need, St Mary’s Broughton Gifford invited all children and staff to wear something spotty or yellow and to bring in a donation of coins to help make a picture of Pudsey himself, raising an incredible £120 altogether!”
Rivermead School in Melksham let their ‘children’s parliament’ decide on the theme of the day, with youngsters choosing to wear rainbow colours. Bowerhill Primary School, Seend Primary School, Forest and Sandridge Primary School, Shaw CofE Primary School and Aloeric Primary School all held successful fundraising events as part of the national fundraising day.
