PUBLISHED: 21:00 18 July 2011
STUDENTS and staff at Priory Community School have helped break records with their annual fundraising for charities - putting nearly £7,000 in the pot for special care babies this year.
This week they came to school dressed as sporting heroes for the day.
They raised another £750 through the non-uniform day for The Cots for Tots Appeal, which supports special care babies at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol.
The sum gave an overall figure of £6,798 over the year – a new annual record for the school.
Principal at the Queensway school in Worle, Neville Coles, said: “All pupils have been heroes in raising such a massive figure for the year.“
The Cots for Tots Appeal is raising £1million to provide four life-saving cots and a new intensive care suite at the neonatal intensive care unit at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol.
