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.”
