Ukraine Fundraising & Support
We are so proud of our schools and young people who have arranged numerous fundraisers and support for the people of Ukraine.
Between the schools we have raised over £3500!
Here's a summary of what's been going on:

They are holding a dress in blue and yellow day on Friday and are selling sunflower seeds (Sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine). Money raised will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee.
