Ilford school raises thousands for twin school in Tanzania and children’s mental illness charity
An Ilford school has presented more than �5,000 to charities to help children in developing countries and those with mental health difficulties.
Christchurch Primary School, in Wellesley Road, raised the money for Childreach International and PEACHY with non-uniform days, a sponsored skip and school fair.
Last week, representatives from the charities visited the school to talk to pupils about their work.
Childreach Internatinal collected a cheque for �4,440 and PEACHY got �900.
Christchurch school is linked with Kibo Primary School in Moshi, Tanzania, which teachers Catherine Coop, Navneet Padda and Sarah Cox visited in April.
