Claire Johnson the Head of St Michael’s C of E Primary School emailed with a list of equipment that the Play Leaders require to develop the children’s playtime experience. The children also hand wrote letters to “Helstonbury” explaining why they need games and equipment for their school.
The full equipment list totalled around £800, Helstonbury are happy to be able to donate £250, which will enable the school to buy some of the essential equipment needed.
Porthleven School’s Signing Choir
Charlene Price of Porthleven School got in touch to ask for funding for her “Signing Choir” which has been running for 5 years and has gone from strength to strength. The choir started with only six pupils and now totals 93 children as its great fun and the children benefit greatly from it. The choir has performed for HRH Prince Charles and at a number of events and venues including Hall For Cornwall. The next step is to enter the National Signing Competition held in Kent on 19/05/18 where they will perform to 14 other choirs and be the first group to go from Cornwall.
The school and choir family have already raised a lot of funds for this as they want to pay for 43 children to travel to Kent and sleep over. However additional funds are needed for embroidered sweatshirts for the children to wear whilst performing. So far £200 has been raised towards the cost of these and Helstonbury have agreed to provide the £600 which is still needed.
