Local school raises money for cancer services at Milton Keynes University Hospital
After a year-long fundraising drive set to benefit cancer patients, Wyvern School in Wolverton are drawing their year to a close after taking on the ‘Charity Champions’ project in support of Milton Keynes Hospital Charity.
The local school began their fundraising in March last year with the intention of making a difference to lives of their local community. To achieve this, the school held a host of various events from; champion fun runs, to an autumn bazaar, a tea party, Christmas cinema, a valentines disco and two staff members even took part in the Silverstone half marathon.
Help us raise the final £70,000 and choose Leo’s Appeal as your charity of the year for 2016!
Is your business, school, or community group looking for a charity partner for 2016? If so, why not consider Leo’s Appeal, and help make a difference to children at Milton Keynes University Hospital.
Leo’s Appeal, launched by our charity in September 2013, set out to raise £200,000 to enhance the experience of children and families visiting Milton Keynes Hospital – and there is just £70,000 left to go!
Thanks to the generous support of the local community, we have been able to achieve many wonderful things since the launch - including purchasing a sensory trolley for children with complex needs, a redevelopment of the play room, chair beds for parents to stay comfortably overnight, and new themed artwork for the entire ward.
