Every little penny helps

LOOKING after the pennies took on a new meaning for children at Long Meadow Primary School when they raised £293.41 last week.

The youngsters experienced just how true the statement ‘every little helps’ is as part of a special ‘Money Day’ organised by numeracy subject leader, Cazz Colmer.

The children placed pennies they brought to school in a penny trail, covering over 385 metres by the end of the day.

The school council will now spend some of the money buying tinned vegetables, fruit, rice pudding and custard for the MK Food Bank and donate the rest to the Food Bank in a cheque.
