Pupils raise money for Haiti
The pupils at Greville Primary School in Ashtead have raised £430 for 'Wheels 4 Haiti', a fund set up within Through the Roof's overseas programme 'Wheels for the World'.
The monies raised by the school will sponsor ten much need wheelchairs.
Pupils created collages of coins they collected to raise money for wheelchairs to be sent to Haiti, with the Epsom based charity. The school council, which is run by pupils from each year groups, chose to support the charity and invited a representative from Through the Roof to their school assembly.
Jacky Oliver, Chief Executive of Through the Roof, says, "Much of the inital giving to Haiti is for alleviating the immediate crisis, but long term the problem remains huge, with so many leg injuries. There is going to be an ongoing need for wheelchairs and for medical professionals to assist in fitting. Through the Roof is fully equipped to contribute through its Wheels for the World Programme and Greville's donation is a great addition to the fund."
