We’ve received sad news that Woodstock School who we’ve been actively raising funds for have had their school bus vandalised to the point where it can no longer run.
You’ve probably seen in our previous post that the school is close to our hearts and provides exceptional care for special needs children in Bristol. The school bus is a vital part of school life as it enables the children to take part in all manner of enriching activities such as swimming lessons, school days out and much more.
The school have been trying to raise funds for the last couple of years with their parents and carers in different ways including selling vegetables they’ve grown themselves in the school garden but they’ve not yet hit their target. Due to this recent act of vandalism it’s now becoming more and more crucial they reach their target for a new bus to enable them to continue the good work they’re doing. To kick start the new need for raising funds Woodstock are hosting a cake sale and raffle on 23rd March for their beloved mini bus.
If anyone would like to donate any raffle prizes to the cause please get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange it for you with the school.
The full news story published in Bristol Post details exactly what’s happened and interviews Jo Carr from the school’s emotional and wellbeing team, alongside some of the pupils at the school. If you’d like to donate some money directly to the school there is a link to their fundraising page at the bottom of the article too. Let’s make sure we can help the school get back on their wheels!
