abercorn school assembly

Schools fundraising is not only a brilliant way to raise money for our charity, but also provides young people with a great opportunity to support their community and learn more about our work. One school that has risen to the challenge is Abercorn, who have raised over £3400 so far to help our life-saving service. The Marylebone school have selected to support our charity for the second year in a row, following a vote by pupils, parents and staff.

Pupils have been supporting our charity through many lively and exciting events, including carol singing at Paddington Station, skipathons and movie nights. These events have not only been fantastic fun for the pupils, but have helped them understand the importance of giving back to their community and taking pride in doing so.

The school has also kindly welcomed speakers from our charity to teach pupils about our service and how the money they’ve raised goes towards helping our patients. The talks, tailored to the pupils’ age groups, have always seen children asking brilliant and insightful questions, and have hopefully inspired some of our service’s future doctors, paramedics and pilots.

On behalf of everyone at the charity, we would like to say a huge thank you to Abercorn School for all they have done to support our charity; we look forward to working together for the rest of this year.

If your school would like to come on board and help our charity’s mission, please contact community@londonsairambulance.org.uk for more information.
