A Worcestershire primary school recently held a ‘Wear it Red’ day to support one of its chosen charities and pupils raised more than £500 with their efforts.
Upton-upon-Severn CofE Primary School celebrated Valentine’s Day by “showing their love and appreciation” for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
Julie Wills, headteacher, said: “We worked with Charley Burke from the charity and approached other local schools.
“We were delighted that thirty other schools signed up to join us in this celebration across the Malvern and Worcestershire area.
“Our school raised £563.44 and we look forward to hearing the final amount when all the schools' donations have been counted together.
“Our school vision is ‘anything is possible, we can all succeed’ and next year we are hoping to involve even more schools in this fun and valuable event.”
The school council researched facts on the charity to learn more about just how its work helps people in need across the county.
On February 14th they were also joined by Justyn Surrall from BBC Hereford and Worcester who interviewed the children to find out just what the charity meant to them.
The school has been working with the charity since 2014.
