We were thrilled to hear from Sam, the Nursery Teacher and Maths Lead at Newington Community Primary School in Ramsgate, Kent earlier this year.
The school had a STEAM week, where each year group made products to sell at their ‘Be My Valentine’ Fayre. From cakes and chocolates to cards to t-shirts – there were so many products for sale on the stalls and they managed to raise the grand total of £979.59!
The school also had a vote as to which charity would receive the funds raised, the three options were all based around STEM/STEAM. There were cylinders where parents and children could choose their preferred charity. We were over the moon to hear that Lightyear came out on top – an amazing sum raised, but also so lovely to hear that our work is supported by the wider community.
A HUGE thank you to all at Newington Community Primary School. If Newington have inspired your school to fund raise for Lightyear, check out our Lightyear School Fundraising Pack for some great ideas!
