Lamps for Gambia

Back in April we set ourselves the task of raising money to buy lamps for The Gambian school with whom we are twinned. To set the ball rolling we held a non-uniform day.

Each class also pledged to raise a further £25 each in order to purchase 10 lamps. Events were planned and held. These included a bike/scooter ride ride, teddy bears picnic, art exhibition, penalty shoot outs, fashion show, plant sale, sponsored walk, Gambian colour day, Pyjama day, cakes sale, a quiz and several other activities.

The children and staff had a lot of fun participating in these events but never forgot the end goal was to help save lives in Chessay Ma Jaw. Through the children's hard work and your generosity we have raised an amazing £1076.53! This will buy a lamp and batteries for every child in the school. Well done to all who took part or donated, we think you are amazing and want you to know what a huge difference you will make to the lives of these Gambian children - you may have even indirectly help save the life of them or their family. The staff are so proud of you all.
