Ballyclare School Presents Readathon Cheque to CLIC Sargent
On the spot in Northern Ireland to collect Ballyclare Secondary School's fabulous Readathon cheque this term was Fionnuala Savage of CLIC Sargent.
At the end of last year Ballyclare Secondary School took part in its second sponsored Readathon Challenge. Pupils in Years 8, 9 and 10 were given the opportunity to read throughout all of their English classes for one week. All pupils were asked to raise as much money as possible for three worthy causes: CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading children’s cancer charity, Roald Dahl Marvellous Children’s Charity, supporting children with neurological and blood disorders, and ReadWell, taking free books and storytellers into children's hospitals to make young patients' lives better.
"Congratulations to all the pupils in years 8,9 and 10 for your diligence in collecting sponsorship money from family and friends - well done to everyone inolved!" said Fionnuala, pictured here with Mrs Bell (Principal) with Ella Cooke and Peter Allen (Year 8 students).
