On Tuesday, Armstrong House hosted a whole school fundraiser with a craft and cake sale. The idea was inspired by Arabella in Year 6 who politely sent a neatly, handwritten letter to Mr Chapman in January requesting to hold a charity event in aid of Worcester Animal Rescue Shelter. Arabella was motivated to support this charity after visiting the shelter. In her letter to Mr Chapman, Arabella explained: “All of the animals were so cute, I just wanted to help a small, local charity that may not get lots of support.”
Arabella and her grandma have been very busy crocheting small animals to sell to the children at the school. The beautifully crafted animals on sale included jellyfish, cats and sea horses.
As a keen knitter, King’s St Alban’s secretary Sara joined in the fun and enjoyed spending her evenings breeding mini whales and aliens! We are also very grateful to Arabella J (and her grandma!) in Armstrong house for supplying knitted chocolate creme egg rabbits.
House charity events have become very popular at King’s St Alban’s and recent events have supported The Blue Cross and Worcestershire Headway. We love to support local charities and it is a wonderful opportunity for children across the school to work together as part of a house community.
It is fair to say that the colourful creatures sold like hot cakes! Who could have guessed that chocolate brownies, homemade cookies and wonderful animal cupcakes would have been so popular with excited children?! There were lots of sticky fingers and faces.
Many thanks to all the Armstrong bakers for creating such delicious treats. The whole event was certainly a gateau blaster!
Congratulations on a successful Craft & Cake Sale and raising an impressive £403.80 for Worcester Animal Rescue Shelter.
