Spelling raises the superb total of £3648 for the NSPCC!


10 February 2017

This week children from the Bramham and Shadwell Federation took part in a sponsored spelling test. Who said children can’t spell these days? Children from Bramham and Shadwell primary schools have certainly worked hard on their spellings to raise the fabulous total of £3648.

The children worked hard to learn a set of spellings given to them by the NSPCC and thanks to the generosity of their sponsors, the money the children have raised will go towards helping and protecting nearly 1000 vulnerable children in our own community.

The NSPCC has a vision that all children are loved, valued and able to fulfil their potential. This is a vision shared by the two schools that embarked upon this fundraising challenge.  The organizer from the NSPCC wrote to the schools to thank the children and commented that

‘I have been made to feel very welcome by the whole staff team; I really appreciate the courtesy, respect, helpfulness and enthusiasm from all the children I met. They are truly a credit to their parents or carers and to all of you at Shadwell Primary School and likewise at Bramham Primary School.’

We are very proud of our children and the manner in which they have responded to help other children. Everyone who gave from the smallest to the largest amount played their part in this fantastic achievement.
