We are extremely grateful to the support received from schools and nurseries.
Old Vicarage School, Richmond
From making homemade lemonade to cards and jewellery, the Fryer-Bovill family were supported by students at Mrs Fryer-Bovill's school.
Best Welly Forward!
On a wet Wednesday in September 197 girls and 20 staff from the Old Vicarage School in Richmond took part in a sponsored walk for CHECT. The girls walked from Pembroke Lodge to Kingston Gate and back, with support from the school's Friends Association, and all the staff and parents. The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust is the school's chosen charity for the year, and this was their launch event to mark the beginning of their charity work. They have raised in excess of £5,200, which will be donated to the trust next week. CHECT is close to the school's heart, as a member of staff's daughter lost her eye to Rb in June this year. Two-year-old Darcey became the school's mascot for the event and had
great fun splashing about in her new wellies!
Rupert House School, Henley on Thames
Staff and pupils at Rupert House School in Henley on Thames worked hard throughout the last year raising money for CHECT through cake sales, having chosen us as their charity of the year.
On June 18 Scarlett Mills and Aimee Ferguson presented CHECT fundraising manager Fiona Heath with a cheque for £665. Thank you to EVERYONE at Rupert House for supporting us!
