How will my support help? How have other people got involved? Need some inspiration? Why not follow the example of the children at Brimington Manor Infant and Nursery School near Chesterfield in Derbyshire who raised an incredible £2,080 in 2016 with their Get Fruity! Event. Children first took part in a sponsored skip, with family and friends donating money for every jump completed in two minutes. The following day at school was a 'Fruity Friday', with children asked to dress in fruity colours or in fruit-themed fancy dress. Children also learnt about the benefits of healthy eating and tasted different types of fruit. Over the past year, cancer has touched the lives of all members of our staff, and we know it has also affected many of the families of the children in our school. Parents and children have always been generous here, but this year we decided to do even more to raise money for this worthwhile cause. We’ve been absolutely bowled over by the money that is coming in, and we’d like to congratulate all the children who took part. They should all be so proud of themselves. – Brimington Manor Headteacher Kathryn Fretwell Sign up now!
