Meet the pupils who are real Hospice Heroes.
For dedicated fund -raisers at Rossall School have raised an impressive £2,000 for our appeal in just a single school term.
The children at the Broadway school decided to back The Gazette’s Hospice Heroes appeal after choosing to support a charity that would benefit children in need on the Fylde coast.
A range of different activities saw the school’s total raised reach £2,182.10, which will now go towards the £200,000 needed to help fund a massive redevelopment of the more than 30 year old facilities on Low Moor Road.
Rossall School has supported Trinity Hospice and Brian House for four years, with junior school pupils spearheading the fund-raising efforts in that time.
To help raise the impressive sum, pupils at the school took part in the reindeer run, held non-uniform days and had collections at school events since before Christmas.
Head of Rossall junior school Katie Lee said: “Senior and junior pupils deserve great credit for their unstinting efforts.
“We all wanted to support a cause which would benefit local children, which is why Trinity and Brian House were chosen.
“For our children to have raised more than £2,000 in recent months alone is an illustration of how much they care about community issues.
“I am really proud of them.”
