Year 5 pupil Freya helped to raise almost £200 over the festive period for local charity 'Let Them Eat Cake'. Freya, who recently joined us at our Preparatory school, was instrumental in fundraising alongside three of her friends for local charity 'Let Them Eat Cake'. The group toured the village of Heighton back in December carol singing for the local residents and raising a total of almost £200, they plan to carry on with their fundraising activities and are hoping to host a pop-up tea room in an effort to raise more money sometime in the near future.
'Let Them Eat Cake' helps people living on the streets of Lincoln and the money raised by the girls will be used to buy essential items from the charities Amazon Wish List, such as sleeping bags, tents, thermal base layers, underwear, hand warmers, hot water bottles and waterproof jackets.
Charity founders state:
"'Let Them Eat Cake' was founded in the Autumn of 2017 to support and aid Lincoln's rough sleeping community. Our Volunteers work in outreach teams to give them food/drinks, and essential items, we offer friendship and support for the complex lives of these individuals. Our project for the winter months is to continue this support and give shelter and warmth in kit items of sleeping bags and tents where we can. Our expenses are provided by our kind volunteers and valued supporters."
Well done to all the girls involved and thank you to Mrs Gilbert for sending in the information on this achievement.
