The staff, pupils and parents at Bishop Ian Ramsey School in Medomsley, County Durham have been very busy raising funds for the 2 charities during the last school term.
A non-uniform day was the first event to be held and raised £168. Next up was a cake and bun stall which raised £110. I was fortunate enough to taste some of the wares. Delicious!
Finally, an Easter Egg raffle was held where parents were asked to donate prizes. A lot of Easter Eggs were donated and I think the pupils stood a more than excellent chance of winning one. This event raised £149.38 giving a grand total raised of £427.38. Brilliant!
I understand that the school are going to track my progress across the USA and I hope to send a thank you message to them from the Rocky Mountains in June. In the meantime, thanks go to Headmaster Mr Boyle, the staff, pupils and parents for a super fundraising effort.
