School partnership raises over £7000 for the Oliver King Foundation
Two of Bedford’s School Councillors, Evie M and
Luke F, represented our school at the recent STRAND School Council event at Formby Hall.
The event was held to recognise the fundraising work undertaken by the 14 schools involved in the partnership, which raised a magnificent £7665.10 for the Oliver King Foundation.
Bedford Primary held its ‘Wear Something Blue’ day for the foundation where children wore their own clothes and donated to the Foundation.
Evie and Luke were brilliant Bedford Ambassadors and met Oliver King’s Dad who presented them with a STRAND Partnership medal and a certificate for the school.
The total raised by the STRAND Partnership schools will buy 7 community facing defibrillators within the community and enable 72 staff to be trained on
