A NICE Surprise Helps Charity Go Virtual

Published Tuesday 13th of October 2020 07:29:22 AM

Back in March as the country went into Lockdown, pupils at The Blue Coat School had been busy preparing for their House Charity Day in aid of NICE - Centre for Movement Disorders. Through Conductive Education, NICE promotes an active lifestyle and new opportunities for children and adults suffering from neurological movement disorders.

Although the School’s official fundraising day was unable to go ahead as planned, the girls in St. Margaret’s House still managed to fulfil some of their plans and complete various sponsored activities leading up to lockdown. These included sponsored cycle rides and swims, cake sales, ironing, dog walking, gardening, book sales, bring and buy sales and card making to name just a few!

This month, Aashani and Emily, the younger sisters of last year’s House Captains who visited the Centre last term, accompanied House Head, Mrs Janine Lynn, and presented a cheque for £3,118.19 to charity fundraiser Annie Smith.

“Like many charities, we know that NICE have had to put many of their fundraising events on hold. The Blue Coat School has enjoyed links with NICE for over twenty years and it is wonderful to be able to visit again and offer our support.” said Mrs Lynn.

Annie explained that the Coronavirus pandemic has meant that a lot of NICE’s work has moved online and is being delivered remotely. The money donated will be used to buy wide-angle camera lenses and items related to improving virtual learning for the users of the charity.

We thank the BCS school community for their support and well done St. Margaret's girls!
