Children in Need Bring and Buy Sale

16th November 2018

A week of fundraising activities for Children in Need culminated in the Great Emmaville Bring and Buy Sale.  People have been so generous with their contributions for the sale and we were able to fill a classroom with games, toys, jigsaws, books and cuddly toys, as well as a couple of tables full of uniform items.  By the end of the day, after a dozen classes had been through, all that remained were two small bags of left-overs.  Not a single cuddly toy.  There were plenty of happy faces, and judging by the cleared tables, there was something for almost everyone.  Special mention to the children of Rio and New York classes, who arrived late in the day, but were still very generous with their contributions, even if there were slim pickings.
The grand total for the week was £1715, an amazing effort and a credit to the Emmaville community.  Well done to all of us - the money will make such a difference to young people who really need the help of charities supported by Children in Need.
