Children at Martin School have been busy bees this term supporting their local hospice. Children held an information stall at their summer fair and have also recently taken part in a bake sale raising a total of £137 for the Hospice. Last month North London Hospice visited the school and held an assembly to children in years 3-6. Hospice staff brought along a special treasure chest of items that symbolise the care the Hospice provides and encouraged pupils to suggest what each item represents. At the end of the assembly children were give the opportunity to ask questions. John Pickering, deputy headteather at Martin School said: ” The children were so inspired by what they heard at the assembly given by North London Hospice that I was inundated with support from groups of children wanting to help. We organised an information stand at our Summer Fair where children took turns to man the stall and share their knowledge of the work of the hospice as we gathered contributions. We recently organised a Bake Sale, where the children will spend time baking cakes and biscuits, to sell in the playground at the end of the day. This has given a real purpose to the children’s willingness to be involved in supporting the work of the hospice and we hope to continue with fundraising activities next year.”
