Westbourne children raise £2,000 plus for Blue Cross for Pets
CHILDREN at Sheffield’s Westbourne School have raised more than £2,000 for their charity of the year.
The Blue Cross for Pets Sheffield unit offers advice about pet care and rehoming as well as free microchipping for dogs and cats.
The charity also make sure homeless dogs get the training and veterinary treatment they need.
“We always allow our children to make their own choice of charity of the year and that means we have supported everything from our local hospices to homeless charities,” said Westbourne Junior School head Jon Clark.
“This year they selected an animal charity and despite all the problems caused by Coronavirus and the lockdown, they still raised £2,257.58.
“We are delighted that our children worked so hard for the charity and they know that their efforts really will make a difference.”
