Two of the children who attend our Afterschool Club at St John Fisher RC Primary School, Wimbledon have been busy fundraising for their local Blue Cross animal hospital in Merton.
Sasha Delaney (8) and Isabella Malveiro (9) love animals and wanted to do something special to support the animal hospital as it’s run solely on donations. They completed a one-mile run in under 15 minutes and raised over £150! We think you’ll agree that’s a great achievement, well done girls! They went to the animal hospital to donate the money raised and to have a tour. Here’s what they had to say:
“On Monday 14 November we visited the Blue Cross Animal Hospital in Merton to give them the money that we had raised through donations, and sponsorship for our run. Maria, the hospital manager, gave us a tour of the hospital and we were allowed to listen to a cat’s heart beat and look at it’s X-rays.
We thought that was really interesting and really hope that the cat recovers quickly. Then we went upstairs and saw where the cats and bunny rabbits were kept in recovery and we also saw the operating tables.
At the end of the tour Maria gave us a goodie bag with fridge magnets and a notebook and other things from Blue Cross, which we thought was really kind of the them. We want to thank everyone for all your very kind donations and the hospital thanked us very much too. ”
