STOMP Charity Walk

The whole school took part in a SCHOOL STOMP this week to raise awareness and money for ‘Health Poverty Action’.  We stomped around the local area chanting and cheering!

Health Poverty Action says:
“Everyone deserves the best chance at good health, regardless of where they are born. An astonishing number of children in the world do not reach their 5th birthday.  The risk of disease, insufficient nutritionand poor sanitation coupled with lack of health facilities means some of the children will not reach adulthood.  These deaths are preventable.”

The pupils of St Matthew’s raised a magnificent £213 for this important charity!
