£600 raised at School sale

St Bernard’s School in Louth has successfully raised over £600 at the School’s Christmas sale which was held recently.

An array of donations was given to the school for the sale thanks to the generosity and kindness from parents and carers of the school as well as the local community.

The funds raised from the Christmas sale will be put towards the cost of a new hoist for the school to support students accessing the trampoline they use for rebound therapy.

The therapy is used to facilitate movement, promote balance, relaxation, sensory integration and to improve fitness and communication skills.

Thanks to a variety of fund raising events that have happened throughout the last few months, the hoist at the cost of £3,500 will be purchased following the Christmas break.

Lea Mason, Headteacher of the school said: “We have all been overwhelmed by the support we have received once again from the whole of the local community in supporting our school, through the Christmas Fayre.

“This opportunity allows students to buy and take home wrapped presents for loved ones and also supports fundraising for the school.”

“We all wish to say a huge thank you to everyone for their generosity.”
