Parents thank teachers this Christmas with a donation to R Charity

TEACHERS and students at an outstanding primary School in Bootle have pledged to raise funds for equipment and services set for the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital this Christmas in a very generous and selfless way.  Whilst many teachers in and around Liverpool will be receiving Christmas presents on the last day of term, teachers and staff at St Monica's Catholic Primary School in Bootle have asked parents not to buy gifts, but to donate ₤1 to their chosen charity, 'R Charity' as a thank you instead. Christmas is an expensive time of year, and for those parents with more than 1 child in School, then buying gifts for teachers can be difficult. So head teacher, Paul Kinsella is delighted with the positive reaction and response that their campaign brings, and hopes that other Schools in the area will follow suit and join in with the:- 'All I want for Christmas is ₤1' campaign.

Head teacher Paul said:- "It's such a pleasure to raise funds for charity in this way at Christmas. It saves a lot of money at the most expensive time of year, and eases the financial burden that can come with the buying of gifts for teachers. But more importantly it sends out an excellent and strong message to our children and their families about the power of everyone giving a little to make a lot."

Paul is extremely proud to be supporting the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital which will open in 2018. He said:- "We have fundraised for lots of charities over the years and this year we have chosen to support R Charity, the Royal Liverpool Hospital's charity. Our children's families and friends may have to attend or be treated in this facility in the future, so we are really proud to contribute to such a cause. It's a Christmas gift from the School to the new Hospital, and to its patients and their families. It would be absolutely amazing to see other Schools joining in to do the same this year."

It's a really simple and lovely request to make to parents; the fundraising team at R Charity think it's a fabulous idea, and are extremely thankful to Paul, his teachers, staff and parents at St Monica's Primary School.

Aimee Clare from the R Charity fundraising team said:- "What a generous way to support our appeal this Christmas. Whether you are a teacher or not, it is nice to receive chocolates and flowers at Christmas, so what a kind thing it is to request donations in lieu of such gifts. A great big thank you to Paul. We still have ₤3 million to raise, so thank you St Monica's! Can you imagine if 10 other Schools joined in collecting ₤1 for R Charity this Christmas? Collectively a great lot of little will be raised towards our appeal."
