Newsletter 18th June 2021 Summer 2021 Holiday Club Activity Planner Schoolshop Update June 21
Wow what an amazing first week we’ve had!
Staff have been out in all weathers with family and dogs for company and have run and walked an amazing 212km already! On our virtual running map, we’ve just passed Torquay and are heading swiftly toward Exeter! We’ve also been blown away by everyone’s generosity having already raised a total of £1,050 for Oscar’s and St Leonard’s Hospice.
A massive thank you to everyone who’s donated, your money will make such a difference. If you’d like to find out more about our challenge or donate please visit: https://www.justgiving.com/team/DunningtonCEPrimarySchoolCharityRun
Although it has been a tough year for everyone, two families in our school community have been in our hearts and prayers constantly over the last 12 months as they have faced some incredibly tough circumstances. Many in our community have been touched by the challenges they have faced and have been keen to support them throughout. With this in mind, as a school staff we wanted to play our part in helping them both to raise money for their chosen charities and hopefully to raise a few smiles along the way!
So, we’ve set ourselves a challenge: to collectively run or walk all the way from Land’s End to John O’Groats by the end of the school year! We will be tracking our run as part of a virtual Conqueror Challenge (1,083 miles) and keeping you updated with regular newsletter entries about our progress. The charities we will be raising money for, in support of these families, are St Leonard’s Hospice and Oscar’s Paediatric Brain Tumour Charity. We hope that you enjoy following our progress and ask that you give what you can to support these incredibility worthy causes.
