St John's CE First School

Green for Grenfell

Children came to school wearing green to raise money to support people affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower.

Hayeswood First School, part of Wimborne Academy Trust are linked with a school in London, which is close to Grenfell Tower. Colville Primary School is situated in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea, just off Portobello Road and very close to Grenfell Tower, which was destroyed by fire. We are keen to help raise money to support the survivors who are now homeless and have lost everything. All money collected will be sent to the Kensington and Chelsea Foundation who have set up an appeal. They will ensure that all money raised goes directly to those affected. Our School Council  requested that we show our support by wearing something green and giving a donation. This will then be passed to Hayeswood School who will send it to the Kensington and Chelsea Foundation, along with other money raised across the trust. On Thursday 29th June 2017, all children were invited to come to school in uniform but wearing something green.
