Polwhele House School in Cornwall has raised over £1200 for four local charities in the run up to Christmas.

Children’s Hospice South West , Shelterbox, The Air Ambulance Service and The Truro Food Bank are the charities who will benefit from the school’s fundraising efforts, which included a Christmas Bazaar and traditional nativity.

Polwhele House’s Headmaster, Alex McCullough, is proud of the school’s fundraising efforts:

“We are delighted to be able to support these vital charities as they all deliver important services in Cornwall. We have been very busy in December with activities outside of the classroom as well as in, which have brought a great deal of enjoyment for our pupils, their families and our staff.  I am pleased that in addition to the joy that this has brought to the school, we are also able to help spread Christmas cheer to these four charities.”

This is the latest in a host of fundraising activities that the school has undertaken for the Children’s Hospice South West, who are grateful for Polwhele House’s ongoing support.

Mary Murfin, Community Fundraiser for Children’s Hospice South West said, “We are absolutely delighted with the continued support of Polwhele House.  It is lovely that such an amazing sum has been raised by children for children.”
