CLIC Sargent

Last year, Nailsworth C of E Primary School supported CLIC Sargent

CLIC Sargent provide specialist support, to help and guide young cancer patients and their families.

Wilm’s Tumour is a rare type of kidney cancer that only affects about 85 children a year in the UK.

Our reason for supporting this charity is because a pupil in our Year 2 class was sadly diagnosed with Wilm’s Tumour. We are delighted to say that on 3rd March 2020 he completed his treatment!  He underwent an operation to remove his tumours, followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy at Bristol Children’s hospital.

We are immensely proud of the Nailsworth School community who raised nearly £5,000.00 for CLIC Sargent! An AWESOME show of support. 

CLIC Sargent work tirelessly to support patients and their families in every way needed; emotionally, practically, financially, educationally and clinically.  Through extensive research and by campaigning for policy change, they also give young Cancer patients’ and their families a voice to politicans and decision makers across the UK.   

So, how did we raise funds? 

Here are just some of the activities we undertook:

Valentine’s Disco Cake Sale

We raised a fantastic £189.55 for CLIC Sargent

 

Art for Sale @ PULP 

One of our talented artists in year 1 sold his pictures to raise money.

He has raised £268.83! 

 

World Book Day 1 Mile Run

Children and staff ran one mile to show support for the Bath Half Marathon runners. Some parents and family members  joined in with the children and some came to cheer us on.

Refreshments and cakes, made by Reception raised £135.30 for CLIC Sargent! 

Bath half marathon 2019

An intrepid Nailsworth team of staff, partners and parents (Heidi North, Sarah Edwards, Vince Southcott, Clare Tyler-Sell, Mark Davis, Amanda Jordan, Natalie Wooldridge and Andrew Pickford) ran the Bath half marathon on Sunday 17th March 2019.  

They all completed the challenge, running all the way. Well done to Heidi and Andy who stormed  the course finishing around 90 minutes or under. They where followed by Natalie and Sarah both close to the 2 hour mark, then Mark, Amanda and Clare who hit the 2.5 hour mark (fab result for Mark and Amanda as newbies). Finally Mr. Southcott ensured all the other runners finished safely in beating 3 hours and the sweep up cart!

The Table Mountain KS2 Challenge in June 2019

In June, the whole of KS2 tackled a mountain walk up Crug Hywell (Table Mountain) in the Brecon Beacons, Wales. A massive challenge – 1479 feet to the top!

 

Woodchester KS1 Walking Challenge in June 2019

KS1 picked up the baton from KS2 with a more local walk around the picturesque and vast grounds surrounding Woodchester Mansion – not so much up hill but still a challenging 6 mile walk for little legs!  Another sponsored event that took our grand total fundraising to over £4,800.

Thank you to everyone for your amazing generosity for this vital charity.
