Local MP Rosie Cooper was only too happy to make the first contribution to Moorside Primary Schools fundraising efforts. A group of 10 and 11 year old children from the school spent three hours on a Friday afternoon helping to pack shoppers bags in return for a donation towards their school trips.
Children from years 6, 4 and 3 were on hand to help shoppers at Asda in Skelmersdale, which was part of the schools efforts to raise funds towards a year 6 residential trip to Borwick Hall near the Lake District and other trips for pupils in all years at the primary school.
“I was pleased to start off what proved to be a very successful fundraising afternoon for the school. All the children involved were very keen to help out the local shoppers. There is no doubt that the children deserve the trip which they have earned through their efforts.”
Mike Mitchell, a teacher at Moorside School said:
“We were overwhelmed by the kindness and support from the customers and staff at Asda and we’d like to thank everyone who helped out.”
For all the hard work the children managed to raise over £750 on the day thanks to the generous contribution of the Asda customers.
