Unwilling to let an opportunity to raise money for a good cause pass them by, children at Meysey Hampton Primary school once again put their thinking caps on to create a whole school event to Support Red Nose Day 2021.

Although pupils had just returned to school after lockdown, Ailsa and Kirstie in Year 6 and Year 3 led the event, supported by their parents and friends (Freya, Charlotte and Kayla).

They re-organised their school day on Friday, March 26, to provide a host of fun activities including a joke hunt in the school grounds, three-legged races and an infant dress up as a superhero event for everyone to enjoy.

Despite being held a week after the televised national fundraiser, the children’s generosity of spirit and the generosity of their school community raised over £135 for Comic Relief which provides support for national and international aid projects.

This isn’t the first time the girls have sprung into action either.

The sisters, Ailsa and Kirstie were recognized for their charity work last year too, and awarded with their school ‘Charity Representative’ badges, when they once again independently organised another hugely successful fundraiser for Sports Relief where an amazing £263 was donated following their gallant efforts.

Meysey Hampton Church of England Primary school already commits to supporting Cirencester foodbank and International toilet twinning, but the kind-hearted and entrepreneurial pupils are always willing and able to support others in need whenever they can.
