Students wear Pyjamas to raise money for their less fortunate peers
Children from Place Farm Primary School and Castle Manor Business and Enterprise College wore their pyjamas and slippers to school on Thursday 13th October as we celebrated Humphrey’s Pyjama Week together!
Humphrey’s Pyjama Week invites children to wear their pyjamas to nursery or school for one day during the week and give a £2 donation for The Children’s Trust.
We also had a ‘Best Dressed Bear’ competition at both schools, with lots of students and staff of all ages taking part.
Between us we have raised over £1000 for The Children’s Trust.
Alison Weston, Community Cohesion Coordinator said ‘I am really proud of all of our students across both of the Partnership schools. They made a massive effort to turn up in PJ’s and with their teddy bears on what was a cold and wet October day. It just goes to show how far our youngsters will go for charity!’
Background to the Children’s Trust
The Children's Trust is a national charity providing care, therapy and education for children who have become disabled as a result of an accident or illness, or for children who were born with multiple learning disabilities and complex medical needs. It is also the UK's leading centre for children with acquired brain injuries.
There are only two places in the UK that specialise in the rehabilitation of children with acquired brain injury. Only a very small proportion of children who could benefit from rehabilitation have the opportunity to have it. Today, the Trust helps children and families from all over the UK and our aim is to reach out to even more children.
Humphrey’s Corner is a series of stories created by Sally Hunter about a charming little elephant called Humphrey. He lives in a loving home with his Mummy, Daddy, big sister Lottie and baby brother Jack.
Humphrey’s Corner is focused on Sally’s fond childhood memories and the experience of being a mum to her three children on which the characters of Humphrey, Lottie and Jack are based.
