Merseyside pupils raise money to help refugees

After hearing about the difficulties refugees and people seeking asylum face in the UK at an assembly, a group of Year 6 children from St Margaret Mary’s Junior School decided they wanted to do something to help.

The assembly was delivered by charity SHARe Knowsley (Support & Help Asylum seekers and Refugees), which aims to help improve the lives of those living in our community who have had to flee their homes.

Supported by their teachers, Miss Madden and Miss Scott, pupils had a non-uniform day and a cake sale to raise some money.

The pupils included Luca Smith, Alfie Tomlinson, Finley Hodgson, Esha Pillai, Hana Helliwell, Gbemi Agboola, Diya Binu Pillai and Livia Binu.

The money raised was put towards a BBQ that SHARe Knowsley was having to celebrate Refugee Week. Margaret Roche, a former teacher at St Margaret Mary’s Junior School, is now the manager of SHARe Knowsley.

She presented each of the hard-working pupils with the SHARe Knowsley Young Person’s Social Action Award Certificate for Raising Funds to Help Refugees.
