Money raised for KidsOut by Leighton Middle School

Year 7 students from Leighton Middle School recently competed in a fun run, to raise money for KidsOut. The school presented Emily Purchase, KidsOut Event Manager, with a cheque for £1240.30.

Every year at the school, each year group competes in a fun run, raising money for a different charity of their choice. In 2008 the students put on a show and provided food and drink for the audience in order to raise money for KidsOut.

KidsOut helps disadvantaged children, and this money could go towards one of five services  offered by KidsOut: the Toy Box Scheme, which provides brand new toys to over 2000 children from abusive homes; the Annual Day Out, which takes over 25,000 children who suffer from disabilities or other disadvantages; the Multimedia Outreach, which sends multimedia vans to children in rural areas who have limited access to education and media; Phyzzpod™ a sensory environment and play area which has aspects for children with a variety of disabilities; and World Stories, a free online service, providing traditional stories from 21 cultures and languages, in both English and their original languge.

Every year, KidsOut helps over 35,000 children who may have escaped domestic violence, have a life-limiting illness, have special educational needs or have become young carers. Find out more by watching the KidsOut video.

Thank you to all the staff and students who helped organise the event in order to raise funds for KidsOut. Your help is much appreciated.
