Raising Awareness and Funds during the CRY RA Week by Stephanie Young

During the week of 20th – 24th November, Forest Hall Primary School held a whole fundraising week for CRY. We are a small school, with less than 200 children, and everyone got involved! I am a teacher there and the children loved the whole week! We started our week with an assembly about CRY and why we were raising the money. I told the children about my cardiac arrest, pacemaker implantation and explained a bit about Long QT Syndrome. The assembly also included lots of information about CRY. We had posters and leaflets all around the school. I sold merchandise from my classroom all week, at playtimes and lunchtimes, and I managed to sell every last item! On the Thursday, we had a Dance Along in the yard, led by another teacher, where parents and children all joined in. We had a big raffle, where the tops prize was a signed Newcastle United ball, and on the Friday, we had a non-uniform day where we all paid £1 to wear something red and we had our MASSIVE cake sale! In total, we managed to raise £649!
