The money was raised at the end last year’s school year when the staff at the academy asked parents of pupils to donate the hospital instead of giving the teachers traditional end of year gifts.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be able to support the amazing work of the NHS and, in particular, the RUH,” commented Vicky Dupras, Head teacher at Abbot Alphege Academy. “Many of our parents work for the NHS so this is something that is dear to our hearts here at Abbot Alphege. We are grateful to the generosity of our fantastic parents who chose to donate to this very deserving charity rather than give end of year gifts to their child’s teacher.”
Laura Cherry, Events & Community Coordinator, commented, “On behalf of everyone at The Forever Friends Appeal, thank you so much to everyone at Abbot Alphege Academy for choosing to support the Royal United Hospitals Bath with your fundraiser. Your support will make a real difference to the people who are cared for at the hospital and now more than ever, your kindness means so much to us.”
