We wanted to make a difference to our local community and heard about the plight of refugees. We learnt about refugees around the world and how they leave their homes and belongings in search for a better life for themselves and their family and we wanted to help.
We held a fundraising event where we came to school in our pyjamas and donated money. We also brought in 'essential' items such as food, water, clothing and toys, which would help a family who had nothing.
We raised over £400 and presented this cheque, along with the donated goods, to the Refugee and Migrant Centre in Wolverhampton.
Further information regarding this centre and how to further support them can be found here rmcentre.org.uk.
