Mrs Fillery supports Save The Children

Posted In Chapel, Charity

The last day of term was a busy one for Bethany. Not only did we get to enjoy House Shout and a pantomime performed by the staff, Mrs Fillery was busy fundraising for the charity, Save The Children.

Thanks to the huge support of staff and pupils, Christmas Jumper Day went down a storm, with pupils proudly showing off their quirky knits. Food and Nutrition Science pupils volunteered, and with support from Ms MacRae created an abundance of mince pies that sold to raise money.

Mrs Fillery also organised events for staff to take part in, including a cake raffle featuring delights both made by staff and kindly donated to the School by Jan at Tesco in Tenterden.  A Christmas ‘Carol-Oke’ sweepstake had teachers guessing and to top it all off, Mrs Fillery put her enviable knitting skills on show and created some beautiful decorations, which she sold to raise money for the charity.

After all of this, Bethany School raised £208.64 for Save The Children, which will go a small way towards supporting their goals of helping more than 20 million children each year.
