Chatteris school pupils support Dogs for Therapy
Generous youngsters from a Chatteris school have raised hundreds of pounds for two good causes.
Glebelands Primary School raised £410 by organising and running a treasure hunt. The proceeds are being split between Dogs for Therapy and a charity that supports children suffering from cancer and their families.
Youngsters and staff at the school were pleased to hand over the cheque for £205 to Christine Dallender-Jones from the dog charity.
Christine, along with her dog Megan, have heard pupils read and helped a youngster begin to overcome his phobia of dogs.
Headteacher, Lisa Sharratt, said: “It has been an amazing experience and a privilege to watch Christine and Megan work together. Only a few weeks ago one of our pupils could not bring himself cross the car park and approach Megan, who was safely locked in her cage in the car. He is now holding her lead and gaining confidence. “The children who read to Megan can’t wait for Mondays! The school council were pleased to help this fantastic charity.” - Youngsters are pictured above with Christine, Megan and Blue.
