Queensgate Grow a pound project

24 Jul 2017

Following the recent tragedy of the Manchester Suicide Bombing after an Ariana Grande concert, Queensgate School Pupils have decided to help raise money for the ‘We Love Manchester Emergency Fund‘.

Pupils in Yrs 5 & 6 were given £1 by Mrs Challinor (head teacher) as part of the annual ‘Grow a Pound’ project. The idea is that then the children have to do something with the £1 to generate more money such as making cakes to sell, making bookmarks or guess the number of sweets in a jar etc.

This year all the money raised went towards the ‘We Love Manchester Emergency Fund‘. This fund supports people who have been injured or bereaved by the attack on 4th June 2017. The donations help alleviate suffering and ensure that victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties.

One group of entrepreneur’s made ‘Bee’ related crafts and showed great teamwork setting up stalls in the village and also sending their crafts with parents to sell at workplaces.  All their hard work in the ‘grow a pound projects’ and a non-uniform day meant the pupils raised an amazing £1,735.19 to send to the charity!

This was a great way to promote creative and entrepreneurial skills with the children, whilst raising money for such a relevant and close to home cause. Well done Queensgate Pupils for this wonderful effort!

The Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor Eddy Newman said 

“The money raised through everyones donations to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund will make a real difference to those who have been affected by this horrific attack. The magnificent support received so far shows just how strongly the world stands united with the city of Manchester at this difficult time.”

Many thanks to the people of Bramhall who supported the pupils.
