Pupils at a Wellingborough primary school have been working hard to help others.

Kathyrn Brown from the NSPCC recently visited Warwick Primary School with the charity’s mascot Buddy to talk to the pupils about the incredible work of the society. She also took the opportunity to increase the children’s knowledge and awareness of their own safety - wherever they are.

The pupils were so impressed to hear about the difference the NSPCC can make, they immediately wanted to do something positive themselves to help the charity.

The school decided to organise a sponsored ‘spell and colour’ and for a week pupils worked hard to learn to spell new words while the youngest in Reception class had to find and colour shapes to reinforce this important maths concept.

They managed to raise almost £900 and Kathyrn returned to the school to deliver a thank you assembly. She said: “I am truly amazed at the huge amount the pupils of Warwick Primary, their teachers, families and friends raised for the NSPCC in super quick time. It was an inspired idea to run a sponsored spell and colour which included every child in the school, also benefitting them through learning as well as benefitting the charity.”

Bartek Gorecki, in Year 1, said: “I was super happy to raise money for Buddy.”

Vice-principal Vicky McGregor said: “We are very grateful to the entire school community for pulling together and raising this huge sum for the NSPCC. We take our social responsibility seriously and I’m personally very pleased that our superb staff, pupils and their families and friends put so much energy into raising funds for such an important charity working for children.”
