Pupils at Danetree Junior School in West Ewell abandoned their usual burgundy school uniform in favour of a slightly more attention grabbing pink for one day recently to help raise money for Cancer Research.
The ‘Think Pink’ fundraising day is a regular fixture on the school calendar, and is held in memory of the school’s former Higher Level Teaching Assistant Jane Mingard. Pink clothing – the brighter the better – was the order of the day for staff and pupils, with a selection of activities taking place, including a mufti day, guess the number of sweets in the jar competition, badge selling and a commemorative balloon release, to help bring in money for the charity.
In total, the children and their families raised £700. “We can’t thank everyone enough for the all their efforts and generosity,” said Danetree head teacher James Broad. “Jane was a wonderful colleague to many here at Danetree, so this cause and charity are particularly
close to all our hearts. A lot of fun was had along the way, but even more importantly, once again, the whole school and wider school family has rallied round and helped us come up with this fantastic total. Everyone should be proud of what they’ve done and the difference they have helped make."
