Pupils at Hall Green Primary School in West Bromwich had a ‘Big Yellow Friday’ before the Easter holiday to raise funds for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF).
By wearing yellow for the day and undertaking a host of yellow themed activities from raffling off yellow hampers to guessing the number of ducks, the children raised over £400 for the Midlands based national charity which is dedicated to fighting all forms of childhood liver disease.
“The School Council heard that Big Yellow Friday was the annual fundraising day for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation and decided to join in when they discovered how the money raised would benefit other children. They were very enthused by the number of yellow themed ideas they could undertake!” explained Year Six teacher, Mrs Collins.
“All classes got involved and really enjoyed their activities. They are really proud of their fundraising total.”
Alison Taylor, Chief Executive of Children’s Liver Disease Foundation added: “CLDF is the only UK charity dedicated to fighting all childhood liver diseases, by providing information and emotional support, funds for research and a voice for all those affected. In order to do this however, we rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, so we are really grateful to the pupils of Hall Green Primary for supporting Big Yellow Friday in this way. They looked like they have had a super day and should be really proud of themselves.
