Mrs Phillips at Muddy Mayhem – March 2017
Mrs Phillips, Deputy Headteacher at Broom Barns, took part in ‘Muddy Mayhem’ last week with over 800 other participants. The muddy obstacle race took place at Knebworth House to raise money for the Garden House Hospice.
Well done Mrs Phillips for finishing the race in style and raising so much money – over £3000 with her friends !
Our children have been learning about WWII and had a visit from Mr Brandon, who was evacuated during the war. The children listening attentively to his experiences and were so inspired they made poppies to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. The Reception children made the 3 ‘Least we forget’ bouquets of poppies for the front of the school and every child made a poppy to decorate the fences into our own field of poppies.
Every year we sell poppies and poppy items on behalf of The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and would like to thank everyone for supporting us. In 2015 we raised £228.80 well done everyone.
We would like to take this opportunity to convey our heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated to and attended our charity coffee morning. Your contribution helped us to raise over £761 for Macmillan this year. Since 2011 we have raised a fantastic £3129 !
The event was attended and enjoyed by well over 100 people including Councillor John Lloyd and ‘Muggy’. Events like this are only successful due to the kind donations of cakes, prizes and time. We couldn’t have pulled this off without your support and everyone who made a donation to this fantastic cause.
So once again thank you to everyone who came along for a cup of coffee.
