Buddy comes to Twycross

Buddy comes to TwycrossOn Friday 31st of October we were delighted to welcome Mrs Deborah Sharp of the NSPCC  and her mascot BUDDY to talk to Senior 1 and Senior 2 about the work they do and to ask for help raising funds through a Spellathon.

The assembly that she gave was thought-provoking and informative, giving information on the work of the NSPCC locally as well as telling us the story of a young boy caught up in the vicious circle of neglect. It gave great cause for reflection amongst the Senior 1 and 2 classes and inspired us to learn our spelling words and collect as many sponsors as we could.

A week or so after the Spellathon took place, Mrs Sharp returned and we are happy and astounded to report that all the hard work put in by the students, parents and form tutors really paid off. Our final total raised was £2,154.01. This truly amazing amount will go towards the pioneering work undertaken by this essential charity helping local communities and making a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children.

As for Senior 1 and 2, I see them proudly displaying their Buddy Badges on their blazers and they tell me they are keen to embark on their next charity event! Watch this space!
