World Heart Day
World Heart Day - September 2021
This month, to launch our Supportive half term in our new Secret to our Success curriculum, we celebrated World Heart Day and set ourselves the goal of raising enough money to buy a defibrillator for the school. Our biggest drive was intended to be our non-school uniform day where we all wore red on World Heart Day, however, we were overwhelmed by the response from our parents and the local community.
We are so proud and grateful to announce that a local company, Gibbs and Dandy, alongside two of their suppliers, Altipran and Anglo Norden, have donated £1,200 to buy the school a paediatric defibrillator.. They have also donated £200 to the Robins for their sponsored walk around Elvaston Castle. Furthermore, British Heart Foundation have contacted the company and offered to pay a £300 contribution to each defibrillator that is bought.
We have also heard about lots of incredible fundraisers, including a Zumbathon, from our amazing parents and we have been completely overwhelmed by the response and all the money raised.
Once we have calculated the total amount and bought our new defibrillator, we will let you know how we have spent the money to further support the health of our incredible community. Thank you all for your support, generosity and kindness!
