Pupils Help Let's Feed Brum Initiative

Published Tuesday 27th of April 2021 10:21:31 AM

Pupils at a The Blue Coat School have been busy saving their pennies and fundraising for a local homeless charity. The children first learnt about the work of Let’s Feed Brum from their school Chaplain, Mrs Becky Drake. Keen to help the Charity make a difference, the children set about collecting coins in empty Smarties tubes and jam jars over the course of the last Lockdown.

Many individual pupils were also inspired to do their own charity work to add to the School’s fundraising total. One pupil alone raised an incredible £1,975 by doing a sponsored Read-a-thon. Like many others in lockdown, he certainly got bitten by the reading bug and finished many books along the way!

“As a Christian my faith should be reflected in my deeds. Jesus Christ said love thy neighbour, the homeless are also my neighbours. This is why it is important to help them.” said 10 year-old Abhav proudly.

Other pupils held bake sales, completed sponsored walks and runs, as well as running virtual quizzes for friends. Back in school for the Trinity term, the School was delighted to present a cheque to Let's Feed Brum founders, Alan and Katherine Strang, for £5,827.97.

“Despite the challenges of another lockdown the school community has come together to raise money and think of others. I am extremely proud that many pupils also took up an individual challenge for this great cause.” says Headmaster, Noel Neeson.
