Curridge Primary school have raised £166!

Children at Curridge Primary school have raised £166 from their latest fundraiser for our charity. Over a quarter of the school’s pupils are service children and they decided to put on a patriotic display as part of Fundraise February. Students from the school came together to paint a Union Jack flag which they displayed outside school. Then friends, parents and passersby were encouraged to cover it with coins.

Chloe Brock, the school’s dedicated Service Children’s Champion, comments: “Supporting our service children is really important to us. We often use resources from Little Troopers to help with this. We run a Military Mates club every week for children to come and share their experiences of being a military child with their friends. They are always excited to raise money for Little Troopers.

Last year, Chloe and the children organised a Super heroes Fancy dress day and Get Cakey bake sale. The children at the school had so much fun. Over the two years the school has raised just under £400!

Louise, founder of our charity said: “We are so grateful to all the students at Curridge School for their fundraising efforts. The flag looked amazing and was such a good idea. We can see how much hard work has gone into the display. Every penny that is raised makes a huge difference to our work in supporting other service children. So many are growing up in the Armed Forces community and share similar life to the children at Curridge school.”

The money raised will go towards projects like our Little Troopers at School programme. The programme includes lots of resources for primary and secondary schools. We have schools packs, wellbeing courses, How to guide for a Forces Life Club, online workshops and more.
