Children in Need
On Friday, 16th November, Bewdley Primary erupted with music to raise money for BBC Children in Need and an upcoming orchestral performance in school.
We set ourselves the challenge of raising £500 by singing for 500 minutes in just one day. We started the singing at 8am with members of the school choir who were joined by staff from across the school. Music then rang out from every corner of the school right up until 4:20 pm when cheers replaced singing as we celebrated our achievement.
The children and their families were outstandingly generous with the sponsor money they collected. Our target of £500 was smashed before the day even started and we finished our collection with a remarkable £1131.81 being raised! Members of the school choir then visited BBC Hereford and Worcester in the evening to hand over our donation. Not only did they get to meet Pudsey Bear, they also sang one of their favourite songs, ‘We Will Rock You’, live on air. Thank you so much to everybody helped us to have such an amazing day and raise so much money.
