Sew Amazing!

Children at Beck Primary School have been very busy raising lots of money for Macmillan Cancer Care in their spare time by knitting and selling chicks that contained a special Easter surprise!

After starting a knitting club after school as part of their Children's University activities, Karen Leasley and other members of staff in the school encouraged the children to put their newly learned skills to good use and fund raise for a fantastic cause. A number of parents/carers helped out too, and demand was so great, children were knitting at home as well as in knitting club to ensure there were enough chicks for everyone!

Originally all proceeds were to be split equally between the knitting club which would enable it to continue, and Macmillan but as the children ended up raising a lot more than expected they were able to donate the majority of the money to Macmillan. 

Congratulations to all the fantastic children, parents/carers and staff involved in raising such an incredible amount of money for such a brilliant cause. We are very VERY proud of you!
