Grace, from Bill Quay Primary School in Gateshead, has raised £360 for CLIC Sargent by selling Andrex soft toy puppies.
The school has always been great supporters of CLIC Sargent and so when Grace came into school one day asking if she could sell Andrex puppies to raise money for the charity the school didn’t hesitate to say yes.
Grace managed to sell 144 puppies altogether to staff and pupils and has made a fantastic £360 for the charity.
Dee Tyler, Area Fundraising Manager for CLIC Sargent, said: “It’s wonderful to have someone like Grace who is so enthusiastic about the cause getting involved at such a young age. Thank you so much to her and all the pupils and staff at Bill Quay. We hope the puppies enjoy their new homes!”
The school is also taking part in CLIC Sargent's Big Bucket Collection at Eldon Square on the 15th December and carol singing for us. They are covering the 3 – 4pm slot but we are looking for another school to cover 2 – 3pm that day, could your school or choir get involved?
