Students visit the children's hospice they fundraised for
Kind-hearted students who raised hundreds of pounds for charity were invited to go and see the work their money will be helping.
A group from Year 8 held a number of fundraisers, including a sponsored haircut, a bake sale and a day-long football event.
The activities saw students raising a total of £511.11 for Children’s Hospice South West.
The group were invited to Little Harbour Children’s Hospice to see the work the charity does and were given a tour of the building.
Anna and Dylan said: “The hospice was kept very clean but it was made so it didn’t seem like a hospital.
“Some rooms were emotional because they had notes from bereaved families whose child had died.
“There is a lot of activities for children to do.”
Sharon Bright, teacher at Pool Academy, said: “I am so proud of all the students who have worked incredibly hard to raise £511.11 for Little Harbour.
“The staff at the Little Harbour were really impressed with how polite and smart all the students were and said that they were a credit to Pool Academy.
“Well done to all the students that helped to raise this incredible amount.”
