Wakefield - getting behind Champions of Change

Lee Brigg Infant and Nursery School, Wakefield, is getting behind Champions of Change this year by hosting a nearly new sale. The idea came from Year One pupil Emily Cartwright who sits on the School Council and in true Champions of Change style said “we could bring in some of our old toys and sell them”. The pupils then agreed to hold a Toy, Book, Bags and Shoes sale.

Pupils and parents will also be creating Pudsey themed treats such as cookies, cakes and buns which will be sold alongside the sale on Tuesday 10 November and Pudsey will be visiting the school in person to sample the treats. To mark the Appeal Day on Friday 13 November, children will be able to 'Wear what you want for the Bear', celebrating the school’s theme for the term of ‘That’s Entertainment’. An entertaining afternoon assembly will also take place on Friday where the amount raised by the school will be revealed.

Lindsay Tutt, Health and Well-being Leader from Lee Brigg Infant and Nursery School said “We’re really looking forward to getting behind BBC Children in Need this year and putting our Champions of Change resources to good use. Our pupils are 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 our pupil’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.”
