Summer Lane Primary School go blue for brain tumour awareness

Summer Lane Primary School go blue for brain tumour awareness

Wed 15 February

The children at Summer Lane Primary School choose a new charity to support each year and they always select one which is poignant and close to their hearts through the suffering of a pupil, parent or staff member. 
This year the school were approached by one of their lovely mums who is currently receiving treatment for a brain tumour and the school felt strongly that they would like to support a local brain tumour charity.  
Ann Youell, Business Manager at Summer Lane Primary School said ‘We appreciate that brain tumour research and support is not often in the limelight, although we know that many families are affected by a brain tumour. In fact, when we advised our families of our choice of charity for this year, it was astounding how many other staff and families said that they had a close family member or friend who had also been affected.’

The School Council decided on the theme for the day – to wear blue and to sell brightly decorated blue buns and cakes.  The bun stall was very busy all playtime, in fact they could have sold three times as many buns! The proceeds raised so far are £192.51 but they expect to jump over the £200 mark by the time the last few pounds and pennies have been counted.
At Christmas, the staff put money into a pot in lieu of Christmas Cards and this raised £108.19, so with another event planned in the Summer Term, Summer Lane Primary hope to reach or exceed their target of £400.

What a fantastic fundraising effort and we love how all of the students match the BTRS logo! You all looked brilliant. Thank you Summer Lane School for raising funds and awareness for BTRS!
