Charity Events for End of Summer Term 2021
We are delighted to announce our charity events for the end of this term. The children are all very keen to support these causes, all of which are entirely optional, and we appreciate your support in helping each event to be a success.
Thursday 8th July - Wear home clothes in exchange for a raffle prize donation
We told you about this on 18th June and are running an end of term raffle in honour of Jo Dobson. The profits will be split between buying sensory equipment to support children at Bentley and to Save the Children. Thank you so much to those people who have handed in or notified us of some great prizes already. In speaking to the children we explained every donation will be welcome and we will create baskets and hampers from these. Brilliant donations include; bottles of wine, a box of chocolates or some fancy biscuits, some pamper products or hobby items (e.g. games, gardening accessories). We are very happy to accept – and recycle - unwanted gifts, but no out of date produce or opened packets please!
Thursday 15th - Fun & Fitness
Miss Wiggins is taking on a great challenge for charity on the 17th July. She is completing the Snowdon Triple Challenge aiming to beat the average time of completion which is 8 hours – Miss Wiggins is aiming for 5½/6 hours!
She will start with a cycle ride of 13 miles with a 300m ascent, followed by the run/hike to the summit of Snowdon and part way down, finishing with a 3.5-mile kayak around Llyn Padern lake.
She is completing this challenge to raise money for Rethink Mental Illness which is a charity to help support adults who are in crisis or struggling with their mental health. Miss Wiggins says "Covid-19 has played a huge part on adults Mental Health, and it is important to support everyone around us, we are all a team!"

On Thursday 15th July Miss Wiggins will be hosting a ‘Mental wellbeing fitness party’ for all the children. They will experience what a real 90’s throwback fitness workout is like, with lots of fun and fitness. We would appreciate a donation which your child/children can bring in and put in Miss Wiggins’ bucket before they take part.
