Southgate sisters set fine example

St Mary’s Pupils Emily and Daniella Southgate have made us all very proud with their extraordinary fundraising efforts.

They have recently raised an impressive £155 for the charity FAST (Families and Schools Together) which is a branch of Save the Children and helps children in the UK to have better schooling.

The sisters thought creatively about how to fundraise and at a recent joint birthday party, instead of receiving presents, they asked friends to make donations to their charity of choice. In addition over the Christmas holidays Emily drew and decorated several pictures which she sold to her neighbours.

What a fantastic achievement. Truly inspiring!
