Whitehouse Common Primary School raise funds through Christmas performance
Pupils, teachers and parents from Whitehouse Common Primary School in Sutton Coldfield have raised a fantastic £120 for University Hospital Birmingham (UHB) Charity’s Christmas appeal to support staff and patients at Good Hope Hospital.
The ongoing pandemic means that schools across the country have not been able to hold their traditional Christmas Concerts and performances for parents. With this in mind, the teachers and Whitehouse Common decided to film each class performing a song, poem, or dance.
The videos were then edited together with the resulting video being sold to parents on memory sticks, with proceeds being split between UHB Charity to support Good Hope Hospital and St Chad’s Church Fund.
This allowed parents to enjoy the festivities from the comfort and safety of their own home. The pupils put on an incredible array of performances, raising £120 for UHB Charity.
Elle Huguet, Fundraising Officer at UHB Charity, said: “Our thanks go to the pupils, teachers and parents from Whitehouse Common Primary School for their hard work in putting this concert together, and for their generous donations.
“Here at UHB Charity we raise funds to help us to bring some Christmas spirit to our hospitals, with food hampers for our staff to enjoy, trees to brighten up our hospitals, and toys for our young patients who are spending Christmas in hospital.
“None of this would be possible without the generosity of our supporters. Thank you Whitehouse Common Primary School!”
