13th November 2015 Happening in Central England

Nottingham schools putting Champions of Change resources to use

Henry Whipple Primary School, Nottingham, is getting behind Champions of Change this year. The Junior Leaders at the school have taken over the Champions of Change activity for this year – as across the country BBC Children in Need and Lloyds Bank, put children in charge of fundraising for the much-loved charity.

The launch assembly took place last week as activity builds towards appeal day on the 13th November. There will be a cake sale, the school will be selling BBC Children in Need wristbands, and there will also be a non-uniform day where the whole school will either be wearing spots or yellow.

The Junior Leaders have also come up with the Kojo challenge, in which children get the chance to beat Kojo – the fastest runner in the school – over 100 metres. The winner will take away lots of Pudsey based prizes.

Sarah Winter, Deputy Head from Henry Whipple Primary School said “We’re really looking forward to getting behind BBC Children in Need this year and putting our Champions of Change Reward Kit to good use. The children are really excited about the opportunity to ‘own’ the fundraising activities.

“We’ve already downloaded the education resources and built them into our lesson plans and are looking forward to seeing the impact they will have on the children’s personal development and understanding of BBC Children in Need and the positive impact that every pound they raise will have on those less fortunate than themselves. Lloyds Bank’s support of Champions of Change will help us to raise even more money this year.”
