S. Anselms fired up for Bluebell Wood

Pet shows, bonfire night stalls and ‘inside out’ non-uniform days have helped Pitts House at S. Anselm’s Preparatory School in Bakewell raise over £4,000 for Bluebell Wood.

Pitts House has been fundraising for the hospice for several years and the children’s imaginative fundraising ideas have brought in over £580 for the charity this year. The latest total was celebrated at a special assembly, where Pitts House captains, Henry and Verity, explained how their house has been raising the money.

Miss Louise Flack, The Head of Pitts House at S. Anselm’s said: “The children in Pitts House hold Bluebell Wood very close to their hearts. They have requested to support the charity for a number of years now and it is fabulous to see how much we have raised in total. I would like to personally thank all the pupils, teachers and parents in Pitts House for their support for this most worthwhile charity.”

Bluebell Wood community fundraiser Lucy Rathbone also gave the pupils an insight into how the money will help children and families across the region.

Lucy said: “Pitts House continue to do amazing fundraising for Bluebell Wood and their support is fantastic. They’ve organised a great range of events to raise money, including their bonfire night stall at school, a Christmas Fair and an ‘Inside Out’ non-uniform day. I’m excited to see what they have planned for next year.

“We really value all this support, which goes a long way in helping families across this region to create special memories together.”
