FUNDRAISING FOR SADsUK
Pupils and staff at Our Lady & St Oswald’s Catholic School began their fundraising for a defibrillator by having a Christmas Jumper Day recently. This, combined with the money raised at the fundraising stall manned by local SADs representative Mrs Ann Wilson, Councillor Vince Hunt and School Governor Mrs Maeve Gambrell meant over £77 was raised.
It is planned to have another fundraising day next year so that the school is able to have a defibrillator installed on the premises, and staff trained to use the equipment.

Alongside the coffees and teas, visitors could choose from the many cakes that parents and members of the school’s community had donated. The school hall was bustling for most of the morning and to date the children have raised £258.56.
There is also to be a bake sale which will undoubtedly raise the final total the school will be passing on to Macmillan
