Kind Crescent kids raise cash to keep homeless people warm in winter

KIND kids at the Crescent School have helped to raise nearly £1,750 to keep homeless people warm in winter.

Over the last few months, the children have been raising money for Rugby homelessness charity Hope4.

They held fundraising events, non-uniform days and food bank collections, sent Christmas cards and gifts to Hope4 clients, and took part in a sponsored fundraising challenge called Active October, co-ordinated by Friends of Crescent, the school’s parents’ association.

The funds have been donated to Hope4 to go towards its ‘Keeping Warm In Winter’ campaign. The charity has confirmed the money will keep the Hope4 Centre warm for their clients next winter.

Crescent’s Key School Pupils appreciated how important the donation would be when they lined up in the school’s playground for this ‘grand total’ photo in the freezing cold weather, just before half term.

A Hope4 spokesperson said: “This is fantastic from the children of Crescent School – well done to all of you! This money will go towards our heating and fuel bills at the Hope Centre.”
