Boarders’ Bag Pack Raises over £950 for Children’s Hospice

On Saturday 21 June, Boarders from all four houses (Trennick, Malvern, Pentreve and Poltisco) helped pack customer bags and handed balloons out to children at Sainsbury’s in Truro.

 

On the day, a brilliant £955.32 was raised for Children’s Hospice Southwest , Little Harbour, St Austell.

 

This term the boarders have embarked on a new giving initiative whereby they are concerning themselves more with how they can give back to the local community, as they are fortunate with the facilities we can offer them here at Truro school and the weekend activities they get up to.

 

Their first venture saw them supporting Surfers against Sewage in their bid to clean up the beaches, when the boarding community came together for the Big Spring Beach Clean at Perranporth beach; a beach we regularly visit as a community.

 

Mary Murfin, Community Fundraiser, came to the school on Thursday 19 June to talk to the boarders about Children’s Hospice Southwest, with particular focus on Little Harbour Hospice.

 

Sarah Mulready, Assistant Housemistress at Pentreve, said: “The message of the care the hospice provides to poorly children and their families really hit home and the boarders were eager to raise money for such a worthy cause. We hope to continue to support Little Harbour as our designated charity next year and in the future.”
