Every year, Holy Trinity School, Barnsley chooses charities to support, as part of their Lenten Fundraising Challenge. This year, the school chose Barnsley Hospice and pupils undertook a variety of fundraising activities.
Year 6 pupils came up with the brilliant idea of a sponsored walk from their school in Athersley to the Town Hall and back in aid of Barnsley Hospice.
They were equipped with buckets to collect money along the way and were accompanied by their teacher, Lee Mullen and teaching assistant, Carol Eckford.
They raised a fantastic amount through donations and sponsorship and the pupils presented a huge cheque for £1809.34 to Sarah Hattersley from Barnsley Hospice at a special assembly in school.
Class teacher, Lee Mullen said, “I’m very proud of the children and everything they’ve achieved. The sponsored walk was their idea and the money they’ve raised is phenomenal.”
