You don’t need to be a superhero to fundraise for Absafe, but it definitely helps to be super.
This was the case with three fantastic junior fundraisers from Forehill Primary School, who arranged their own fundraising campaign involving the whole school.
Absafe was selected as one of two charity beneficiaries, with Mae Anderson, Beth Mutch and Cerys Milne organising a ‘dress as you please’ and ‘dress as a superhero’ day before the October break.
The primary five and six girls also held a ‘Guess the Teddy’s Birthday’ and a ‘Guess the Number of Chocolates in the jar’ contest – all arranged on their own, with tickets sold throughout the school.
In a special end of term assembly on the last day of term, the girls picked the best dressed pupils to take part in a catwalk show – where mini superheroes strutted their stuff in front of fellow students and teachers.
Absafe was presented with their half of the funds raised, which came to £141.10 for each charity.
Beth, aged 9, said: “We enjoyed working together to raise lots of money and had so much fun doing it. We asked our headteacher if we could do this and he helped us a bit, but we did most of the work ourselves. My favourite part was picking out the best dressed superheroes, everyone looked ace. I would like to do more fundraising and Absafe is a great charity to help out.”
The money will help us continue to save lives of children like Mae, Beth and Cerys. Find out more about Fundraising for Absafe
