Make a Child Smile Run
September was Children's Cancer Awareness Month. This year it was even more important to us as one a member of Year 5 was diagnosed with cancer during the summer holidays.
We decided that as a school, we wanted to raise money to purchase toys, games and fun equipment for the children who are being treated at the Child & Teenage Cancer Unit at the RVI Hospital in Newcastle.
I am absolutely over the moon to inform you that our Rickleton Community has raised an astonishing £6154 through completing a sponsored run!
We are all lost for words at the generosity and community spirit shown through this amazing event.
We are now going to look at working with the RVI to purchase many games, toys etc for the children in hospital to enjoy.
Well done and a huge thank you to everyone who donated.
