PROMISES UP FOR AUCTION AT LOCAL SCHOOL


B


edmond Primary School will soon be holding a fundraising event with a difference to raise


money for a school in Africa. An Auction of Promises will be held at


Bedmond Village Hall with all proceeds going to the Kyambai School in Kenya. The school formed the link with its Kenyan


counterpart nearly 3 years ago. Year 1 and 2 pupils did a project on Africa and


started to exchange letters and photos with Kyambai School. Now the whole school is involved with the project and actively fundraises for the 350 pupils in Kenya. Danuta Wall, Head of Bedmond School, told


My Abbots News: ―Everyone is so excited by the link and benefiting from it greatly. The adults are pleased to be involved with aid work so directly and the children are becoming aware of other children in the world who are less privileged than they are.‖ Four members of staff from Bedmond School, including Mrs Wall, are travelling to Kyambai on 6 April where they will visit the school and village. Nora Greeves, who has worked as a Teaching Assistant at Bedmond for 34 years, is organising


the upcoming Auction of Promises. Nora said: ―The money we raise will help buy school meals for the children in Kyambai, as well as offering people the opportunity to win some great items! ―People are pledging a whole range of exciting


items and promises, such as mowing lawns, washing cars, and meals out. It is a silent auction, so rather than the traditional bidding format, people will place their highest bid in an envelope, and the highest bid wins.‖ Viewing of items will take place from 3pm to


5pm on Saturday 7 May, and the silent auction begins at 7pm. For more information call Nora Greeves on 01923 264854.
