TWO charities have benefited from the hard work of a local Lifestyle team who raised over £200.
The team of five Hilderthorpe Primary School pupils – Conner Colman, Jen Burdon, Laurel Pockley, Emily Pockley and Thomas Barker – chose to raise money for the Bridlington Retired Greyhound Trust and Alzheimers Society.
They kicked off their fund-raising with a home-made cake sale which proved so popular with their peers and staff that what was planned as a one-day event turned into a whole week of cake selling at the school.
Conner said: “It was great to see the kids’ faces. They were amazed at what we had made.”
A second event saw the children organise a ‘bring and buy’ sale, followed by bag packing for customers in Morrisons.
Altogether the group raised a grand total of £220 to be shared between the two charities.
The Lifestyle Project is an annual scheme run by Humberside Police to encourage youngsters to spend time in their summer holidays volunteering to benefit the local community and charities.
