Paw-some effort for Help for Heroes
Rendcomb College Junior School have been commended for their contribution to the Help for Heroes Teddy Bear Appeal last term.
The Junior School have been awarded a special certificate in recognition of their contribution to the Help for Heroes annual Christmas Campaign in aid of the injured service men and women in Tidbury near Birmingham.
Over the one week period, the children placed over 50 soft toys in front of the fireplace in Rendcomb’s main reception with a special Christmas message written by the pupils attached to each one.
The Teddy Bear Appeal is held nationally in support of the injured service men and women who spent the Christmas period in hospital because of their injuries. The appeal gives out all of the Teddy’s and toys as gifts to the children left without their families over Christmas.
Head of Juniors, Gavin Roberts said: “It was fantastic to see our teddy bear collection growing in number over the course of the last few weeks of term; well done to all of our pupils for supporting such a worthwhile cause.”
The gifts are given out as part of a number of Christmas parties held for children all over the country where the families get together and celebrate.
