Food themed fundraisers huge success at Paulton Junior School

Pupils at the school voted to support CLIC Sargent as part of their Christmas fundraising scheme.

Their first big idea was a big breakfast and children came to school to eat a healthy meal in their classrooms in exchange for a donation.

Tesco generously offered its support by providing a range of tasty foods for classes to enjoy. Tesco managers, Jenny Slocombe and Becky Eshleigh, also came in to help prepare the healthy feast.

Pupils also wore their Christmas jumpers to lunch in exchange for a second donation. Mrs Chapman and Mrs Mallon who run the school council said: "We have been incredibly proud of the children's efforts and commitment to raise this total across the whole school. Thank you for everyone’s support.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Kiren Fernandes said: “Both events were a fantastic success, and everyone involved should be very proud of themselves.

"10 children are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK, and fundraisers like the Big Breakfast are invaluable in helping CLIC Sargent support them and their families.”
