Children Raise £560 in Sponsored Read

The Sponsored Read raised over £560!
Parents, children and staff at Pilton Infants’ School and Pilton Bluecoat Academy were keen to support our ‘Buy Manning’s Pit’ campaign, and organised a sponsored reading event over Christmas.
It’s not the best time of year to ask for more money, but the children who took part were very committed and managed to raise over £560, and read over 100 books.
The prize draw for a £20 book voucher was won by Arthur Barber of Bluecoat Academy.
This is another great result, thank you to all the parents and children who took part:
