A SCHOOL has raised more than £1,200 for a Sheffield Children’s Hospital appeal.
Cawthorne Church of England Primary’s staff and children were spurred into action when a pupil had an extended stay in the hospital last year.
Deputy headteacher Ruth Kukula and colleagues Becky Lack, Kirstie Jones and Sian Kershaw oversaw a series of events including Christmas rambles and carol singing in the village.
A school spokesperson said: “An informative assembly was delivered by a fundraising worker so our children and family members knew exactly how their hard earned money would be spent to benefit the children in and under the hospital’s care.
“In total, we raised £1,211.81, which exceeded our ambitious £600 target by a considerable amount.
“Everyone was extremely pleased with their hard work and effort knowing that the money raised was going to a fantastic cause.
“We strive to develop individual excellence and provide opportunities that enhance our children’s personal development so that they understand their role in society and are able to make positive contributions.

“This charity work is another example of how our children and community at Cawthorne have shone bright for the benefit of others.”
