The nook schools project, encourages schools to raise £400 each towards the cost of a soft play room at the nook.
A team of Year 6 children at Poringland Primary School, just down the road from the nook, organised for members of the school’s junior choir to sing carols and Christmas songs outside a nearby Budgens, collecting £145 in an hour. They also organised a classic penny mile totalling 640m. More activities are on the cards as the school has decided to up its fundraising goal to £1,000.
Great Yarmouth Charter Academy has given £2,100 towards the schools project following its Santa run along the beach. Students were joined by dogs in Christmas outfits and Father Christmas himself. Other members of the community also came out to offer their support.
Dereham Church Infant and Nursery School collected £761 over the Christmas period, too, also holding a Santa run.
