St Margaret’s Prep School in Colne have spent the last year fundraising for Wiltshire Sight, their chosen charity of 2016/17. In total, the school raised £4,450 for the sight loss charity. This will help fund Wiltshire Sight’s vital support services that enable visually impaired people to continue livening independently.
St Margaret’s students have been involved with a number of fundraising activities including a carol service at Christmas, a “Mad hair day”, a sponsored walk and a visit to St Lucy’s Sight Centre where they learned about different eye conditions. Finally, the school’s open day provided an opportunity to present Wiltshire Sight’s Chairman (Mike Weston) and Operations Manager (Maggie Hemmings) with the money raised over the course of the year.
Wiltshire Sight’s Operations Manager, Maggie Hemmings said: “We’ve had a brilliant time working with St Margaret’s Prep School over the past year. The pupils have learnt about the importance of good eye health and they have raised an incredible sum of money for us. We all had great fun working together!”
