Parents are fundraising for Charlton Park Academy students

Parents and carers at Charlton Park Academy are fundraising to give their children a special spend-off when they leave the school in the summer.

There’s been no money to host the event at the school, which caters for children with special needs and disabilities, for the past three years. So parents are taking to the streets (and the internet) to find the cash themselves.

Vivien writes: “The kids often raise money for other charities themselves – time to support them, we feel. As parents we are making and selling crafts and have a choir which will be singing in General Gordon Square and the Woolwich Centre on Thursday with a bucket for coins! We have six months to raise the money.”
