Ollie and Will from the Scorpions approached me on Friday to say they wished to organise something to help support the refugees from Ukraine. They have come up with the idea of children being able to wear something blue and/or yellow (the colours of the Ukrainian flag) and to hold a cake sale – but a cake sale with a difference – in that children bring cakes in to ‘sell’ – but the purchase cost is simply a donation – so not fixed cost!
The children in the Scorpions had discussed the Ukraine crisis during their R.E lesson, and appreciate the complexities. Our focus is going to very much be on the fact that the conflict has meant that more than a million people have already fled their home and have had to leave their belongings behind and are now in need of food, shelter, clothes and medication.
Please help us to do our bit!
We will continue to collect any donations up to Friday 18th March.
