‘Bunny-hop’ fundraiser raises hundreds for hospice

An incredible fundraising effort by pupils, staff and parents at Theddlethorpe Primary Academy has raised £734 for St Barnabas Hospice Trust in Lincolnshire.

Theddlethorpe Primary Academy pupils take part in the sponsored bunny hop to raise money for St Barnabas Hospice, Lincolnshire. They are: Ethan Doherty, Freddie-Levi Nock, Paige Potter, Emelia Henderson, Sasha Hancock, Olivia Asher, Sophie Rigley, and Katy Alan.

The children took part in a two-day sponsored bunny hop at Easter, wearing bunny ears and hopping around the Academy field to raise money for the worthy cause.

Their JustGiving page was generously supported by parents, friends and family of pupils at the school.

Theddlethorpe Primary Academy’s Principal Susan Cook said: “The children took part in the bunny hop with such enthusiasm, and the support of family and friends in raising money for the St Barnabas Hospice has been overwhelming. We are so grateful to everyone who has helped us to raise money for this fantastic organisation.”

Pupil Ella Smith (Reception) embraces her bunny ears for the charity event.

Louise Cotton, events organiser for St Barnabas Hospice, said: “We send our thanks to all of the children for taking part in this wonderful event, all teachers and the whole school community. We are overwhelmed by their support.”
