The Froebelian School Horsforth, Leeds has begun the academic year raising an unprecedented amount for their designated charity for the year.
The leading Independent Preparatory School for children aged 3-11 years has come together as a community to raise over £2300.00 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance in just five months.
With future events in the offing, offering a number of opportunities to raise even more money, they are off to a ‘flying start’.
Headteacher Catherine Dodds said: “I am over whelmed by how the Froebelian family has embraced the fundraising for the charity this year - with individual and group efforts from pupils, staff, parents, friends and the PTA - we are on target for a record breaking year.”
Vickie Bowden, West Yorkshire Regional Fundraiser, from Yorkshire Air Ambulance said: “The charity relies on donations to ensure we can continue to save lives across the region and make a difference to someone who needs our help. With a running cost of around £12,000 per day, we are incredibly grateful to each and everyone at The Froebelian School for making such a magnificent start to their fundraising year.”
