Beech House Help for Kids of Bolton
Wednesday, 12 October 2011
Year 2 pupils at Beech House presented a cheque for £193.56 to Bolton Wanderers Captain Kevin Davies, for his charity Kids of Bolton.
The pupils raised the money for the local charity through a cake sale at the School. The children produced posters and letters to parents asking for home baked cakes, price labels and a banner to promote their sale. They sold the cakes to their fellow Year 2 pupils and even some parents came along.
Kevin Davies was delighted to receive the donation. He said: "My charity has been going about a year now and I have had three big fundraisers so I know how hard it is organising events. It's great that the Bolton School Infants have put in all this hard work and raised so much for the many children in this area who are less fortunate than them. The charity is focused on helping those less fortunate to go on and achieve good things in their chosen sport that otherwise they would not have the chance to. Recently we have been able to buy a new strip for a football team and provide gymnasts with a new facility."
