Emergency Services Appreciation Day

Emergency Services Appreciation Day

29th June 2017 Off By folss_admin

Our emergency services have been even more in the public eye following tragic events in London and Manchester in recent weeks. As a school community we would like to show our support and appreciation for the brave and dedicated people who protect, rescue and treat the general public daily, sometime at the cost of their own lives. Therefore, we are holding an ‘Emergency Services Appreciation Day’ on Monday 10th July. Engaging with this event will help children focus on the positive element within the tragic events of London, Manchester and daily around the country.

We ask that your children can attend school that day in non-uniform and preferably in an emergency services outfit (this helps the children be involved and engage with the event). It doesn’t have to be a ‘full costume’ it can be just a hat, badge, accessory. We do not want parents to spend lots of money on an outfit! We’d rather you saved the money or donated what you would have spent on a costume to our cause.

We also ask that you please send in a minimum of a £1 donation in a sealed named envelope in your child’s book bag or place your donation in the FOLSS post box in the School Office Reception area. All proceeds of the day will be split evenly between:

Great Western Air Ambulance Charity
The Fire Fighters Charity
The Police Rehabilitation Centre
Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI)
