Last week, one of my favourite classes, 11A, had a charity event to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
There were posters akimbo all over the school advising us to bring in all our spare change as they were going to attempt to make the hospital’s balloon logo out of coins on the hall floor, how exciting!
Naturally, I wanted to be part of it all and robustly searched all my pockets (plus Darrell’s and Nigel’s) and Andy’s spare change pot in the kitchen, for as many coins as I could muster.
Positioning my coins was a precision operation!!
The girls had also made some very lovely friendship bracelets and since mine had worn out, it was an ideal opportunity to acquire a new one…….
So in the end I told the young ladies running the stall that if there were any left over they could bring one to me in Resources, as I am sure whatever they bought me would be beautiful …… as indeed it was!
