Spalding pupils raise cash for RNLI after Grace Darling project

Children at Spalding Parish Church of England Day School have been studying the life of Grace Darling, which then led to a huge summer fundraiser for the RNLI.

Children in Year One thoroughly enjoyed their ‘wow day’ where they re-enacted a storm in the classroom, which kick started their topic. They learnt about Grace Darling, who is famed for participating in the rescue of survivors from the shipwrecked Forfarshire in 1838.

RNLI volunteer Terence Carter was invited to the school to teach the children all about beach safety as part of their topic.

The children were so engaged with the talk that they wanted to hold a fundraiser for the RNLI charity and soon set to work planning their cake stall.

In the last weeks of term children baked cakes, made posters and helped put together a letter to send out to parents.

Children helped to sell the cakes at play time and even after school as there were so many.

Terence was then invited back into school to receive the cheque of £206.50.
