Wendover Children Raise £300 for Ukraine and the DEC!

A group of local schoolchildren have raised over £300 for the Disasters Emergency Committee at a Saturday morning training session of Wendover Junior Football Club.

The nine year old friends from Wendover C of E Junior School were inspired by other fundraising in their school and decided they could make bracelets and cakes to sell and raise money for the people of Ukraine. Bella Gaglione, who plays in the Wendover Juniors FC Girls Team, joined forces with friends Abigail Blackmore-Squires, Ava Bell and Bella’s 7 year old brother Xander to make dozens of sweet treats and jewellery to sell.

Gareth Kynaston, Headteacher at Wendover CofE said, “We’re so proud to see our pupils living the school values of Respect, Responsibility, Reflection and Resilience through this fundraising activity and delighted they have been inspired by the discussions in school.”

Wendover Junior Football Club told us, “We’re delighted that our weekly training sessions provided the audience for this brilliant community activity – well done and thank you to everyone who supported them.”
