9th March 2020 — RGS Springfield recently welcomed ambassadors Chris and Michelle from The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust. The charity was chosen by our School Council as one of the three charities to support this year with a variety of fundraising efforts. The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust was founded in memory of Grace who died of a rare form of childhood cancer. The team at the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust works to raise awareness, fund research into rare childhood cancers and produce educational materials as well as supporting families who are affected by these illnesses.
Our pupils learnt about Grace’s story and what the charity does and what any money raised might be used for to inspire them to put love and energy into their fundraising. It is important that we find charities that they can learn from, connect with and feel the positive impact of their contribution.
Mrs Laura Brown Head Mistress at RGS Springfield says, “The children are planning lots of fundraising to support all their charities this year including cake sales, sponsored swims and a fun run.”
