Special Event - Birmingham Children's Hospital Charity

2 May 2017

The Birmingham children’s hospital charity visited out school to deliver an assembly about how the Big Sleuth and Birmingham children’s hospital are joining together to help raise money for the charity.

Our visitor explained how the money St Philips raises will help the hospital. Whether it's £5 to fund some crayons and colouring books whilst waiting for test results, or £42,000 for a lifesaving machine that operates as a mechanical heart. Charitable donations are key to making the hospital what they are.

The School Council then met with Anna to discuss ideas for fundraising for our school and they made a list to share with Mrs Hinton.

When Anna left she said it’s the best School Council meeting she had ever been to and we have such lovely well-mannered children at St Philips.
