£211 raised for Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice
Children from Rendcomb College's Junior and Senior Schools presented a giant cheque for £211.38 to Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice following their ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ in December.
Megan Platt, Community Fundraiser for Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, accepted the cheque and said: “We’d like to thank Rendcomb College for entering into the Christmas spirit to support the Hospice. It was lovely to visit the school and meet some of the children and staff who took part to raise funds for our care.”
Children from the Nursery and Junior School joined the College's Head Boy and Girl to present the cheque along with Mr Gavin Roberts, Head of Juniors.
Mr Roberts said: “It was a pleasure to support such a worthwhile charity as Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice and we are pleased that the funds we have raised will be put to such good use in the local community. The Junior School pupils thoroughly enjoyed dressing up in their Christmas jumpers and it is wonderful to see how such a small gesture can help so many people.”
Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice is the only palliative care inpatient unit in Gloucestershire and provides expert palliative care and support for people who are living with a life-limiting condition, as well as supporting their families.
