The Junior Girls’ Charity Afternoon was once again a bustling occasion. Pupils in Years 3, 4 and 5 enjoyed the glorious sunny weather while browsing the stalls around the playground before deciding where to spend their pocket money and which charities to support.

Year 6 organised a wide range of fun activities and tasty treats for the younger girls, all to aid their chosen charitable causes. This year pupils raised money for fifteen different charities!

There were lucky dips and raffles, and girls enjoyed playing ‘Pin the Tail on the Unicorn’ and trying the ‘Unicorn Tombola’. They also tested their luck with ‘Guess the Name of the Teddy’, ‘Guess the Teddy’ and ‘How Many Sweets in the Jar?’ All of the games offered great prizes to encourage girls to take part.

Girls could feel glamorous with a visit to one of the stalls offering nail painting, hair braiding and styling, face glitter, hair glitter, festival glitter or glitter tattoos!

Stalls served up food and drink, including ice creams, ice pops, refreshing juice and mocktails. There were also fruit skewers with Nutella, a buffet of American sweets, candyfloss, penny sweets, cakes, and Sophie’s Haribo Stall.

Year 6 also led the whole school in a flash mob dance on the playground!

The charities the girls chose to support were: BAND, Bolton Hospice, Breaking Barriers, Cancer Research, Caudwell Lyme Disease, Derian House, endangered animals, Friends of the Earth, Joining Jack, National Race Horse Society, One Love Manchester, RNLI, RSPCA, Tickled Pink and Water Aid.
