Miss Martin (our student teacher) told us all about Margaret Green Animal Rescue because she got her dog from there. Trinity found the website and we were really inspired. As soon as we had finished looking at the website, we went straight to Mrs Boyes (one of the Assistant Heads) and told her all about it.
That is how it all began!
We had the idea of holding a jumble sale in order to raise money for them. We advertised it by talking in Assembly as well as making posters as a group.
Soon it was all organised and it was a great success. We sold all our old toys and books and raised £120.77.
Then a volunteer from Margaret Green Animal Rescue visited the school and we were really excited. She told us all about their Centre and what they did there.
Then we handed over the cheque for £120.77. She was very pleased with the amount we had raised and said that it would be put to good use. She said that we would be very welcome to visit them at any time.
Thank you Mrs Boyes for giving us permission to do the jumble sale, we really appreciated it.
Thanks to everybody who helped. We raised more money than we expected!
