SCARY FUNDRAISING AT THE LEEDS PRIMARY SCHOOL
Ghastly witches and creepy phantoms from all over Leeds joined in a scary fundraising arranged at the Leeds primary school.
Ornate dresses (frightening at the same time) were put on by the students and teachers alike to help conduct the Halloween inspired activities yesterday at Quarry Mount Primary School, Woodhouse.
Every child that took part in the event contributed a pound each while the donation by each teacher was £1.50. The fundraising was arranged for the aid and support of “Cash for Kids charity”. This is the official charity of Radio Aire & Magic 828. According to the official website of Radio Aire, the charity supports “individual children, children from groups and children’s charities where children are sick, deprived and in need of extra support.” The website also states: “In 2013, we raised over £974,504 and supported 21,659 of the neediest local children in Leeds & West Yorkshire.”
The event was organized by Voice of Quarry Mount volunteer group with the expectation that a pre-half session entertainment for students would bear successful outcome for donations, and seeing the results, it did.
According to a worker of Voice of Quarry Mount, Shirlena Grant, the event proved a real success as everyone – from student to teacher – put on their best “spooky outfit”. She further said that she was very happy with the proceedings and was glad that she helped conducting the charity. “They should all be proud of themselves,” she said.
The group organized an after-school affair as well in which students took part in spooky games and enjoyed food following a show by Cash for Kids.
