Cockwood School ran a special sponsored summer art event where children paid £1 and were given a ball of clay to model a head and, after firing, paint it! They raised £51 for THF. At a recent special charities assembly at the school, Annie and Roger Kirk received the donation to THF and spoke to the children about the work of the charity – something they are happy do for any school.
Cockwood was one of the very first schools to work with the charity and every year year they take advantage of the THF offer for arts-based school workshops, projects and the Helen Foundation Award.
THF is very grateful for the fund-raising support from the school and encourages other schools to run events to support the charity! Here’s Head Girl Hannah presenting the cheque to Roger.
