Store customers help pupils pack in the cash
CUSTOMERS dug deep to help Macmillan Cancer Support — thanks to some support from Hafod Primary School pupils.
The youngsters spent two days at the tills at Sainsbury's, packing the bags of customers, and inviting them to make a contribution to the cancer charity.
The school has been raising money for the charity to support children in Wales and in Peru who have cancer.
The school's head teacher, Rachel Webb, is due to fly out to the South American country, to visit schools and hospitals, as well as climbing Machu Picchu with Unicef worker Sarah Hooke.
The school was the first in Wales to be awarded the level two Unicef Rights Respecting School Award, recognising it for putting the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school's planning, policies, practice and ethos.
Ms Webb said: "As part of our work with MacMillan, we have been raising awareness of cancer in schools and linking with our work on children's rights.
"We both have personal reasons for supporting the cancer charity. Customers have been so generous, and we are very grateful for everything they have contributed."
