Park Mead pupils have been busy over the past term raising money for two charities they chose to support this academic year.

One of the charities is the Haemophilia Society - a charity very close to their hearts as one of their fellow pupils suffers from haemophilia. Through a mufti day and cake sale, the Park Mead community managed to raise a magnificent £204.80 for the charity.

Secondly, the parents and children spent their free time collecting gifts for Ugandan orphans. All the pupils were moved to find out that because the boys do not have parents due to the fighting over there, they do not know when their birthdays are, so the charity celebrates all of their birthdays at one big event in August.

The families of Park Mead packed dozens of shoe boxes full of gifts for the boys,plus some football kits and footballs kindly donated by Little Common Football club. The boxes were all then flown across to Uganda.

The school also held a table sale during their sports day, which raised a further £152.50 for the charity.

A pupil from Park Mead School said, “One of the things we think is amazing about Park Mead is how we care about others and support charities both locally and abroad.”
