Shoeboxes to benefit children with cancer
12:00pm Friday 7th December 2012 in News
CHILDREN from Forres Sandle Manor Pre-Prep have given their backing to WellyWalk, a childhood cancer charity.
Headteacher Tracy Spottiswood said: “Imagine, if you can begin to bear to, the horror of your child being diagnosed with cancer.
“Then imagine the long hours that may have to be spent in hospital wards or clinics.
“For one of our parents at Forres Sandle Manor Pre-Prep this became a reality, made even worse by the fact that there was often nothing to do as children with decreased immunity cannot share toys and materials with others. WellyWalk was set up to meet this need, and prepares art and craft boxes that can be given to those who want them.”
Two children from the school and Jane Brown, a trustee for the WellyWalk charity, gave the boxes to Jane Poole, a member of the play-worker team in the day unit and Sarum Ward.
