HAWKCHURCH:School supports air ambulance
Thursday, 27 March 2014
CHILDREN from Hawkchurch Primary School were pleased to hand over a collection box to Devon Air Ambulance last week.
More than £200 was raised when parents from the school organised a community breakfast last month and served 70 people. Half the money has gone to the school and half to the air ambulance.
Tim Hoad, who collected the money on behalf of the charity, was delighted with the donation and explained that to the children that Hawkchurch is exactly the type of rural village that can really benefit from the service it provides .
n PUPILS and staff of Hawkchurch Primary School are taking part in the British Heart Foundation’s “Jump Off” event, which is being held at the school on Friday, April 4th at 1 pm.
A total of 35 pupils aged between four and 11 are putting on their trainers to take part in the fun skipping challenge as part of the national Jump Rope for Heart intiative organised by the charity.
Clare Cleverly, PE co-ordinator at Hawkchurch Primary, said: "Preparing for the ‘Jump Off’ has given our pupils a reason to get active, not to mention have lots of fun. The Jump Rope for Heart scheme helps us encourage healthy habits, whilst creating a more active ethos in school. It's a fantastic event for the school, teachers and pupils.”
The school will also be holding a spring fete as part of this fundraising initiative where there will be a bouncy castle, stalls and refreshments available to buy.
