Lichfield Ladies Circle boost the coffers for Saxon Hill School
Members of Lichfield Ladies Circle have provided a much needed boost to the fund-raising efforts of Saxon Hill School Community Cafe Fund. The project will be run entirely by pupils on a non profit making basis, and will offer locally sourced Fair Trade refreshments and meals, with pupils even growing their own vegetables. It will be run as a charity and will also help to support their own chosen charities which have close links to Saxon Hill. The facility will include a breakfast club, a Senior Citizens Lunch Club, and hopefully a wireless internet facility.
The school has received some initial funding from Lichfield District Council, and it is hoped that the build will commence during 2012.
Mr Jon Thickett, headteacher is “delighted” with the £700 donation, and added: “We are appealing to organisations such as Lichfield Ladies Circle to help us to reach our £600,000 target. If anyone can help our fund-raising efforts, please contact the school. Alternatively you can donate online at: www.justgiving.com/saxonhillschool.”
Lichfield Ladies Circle has supported many local charities during the year – Gaynor Webb, Chairman of the club, said: “We are so pleased to support Saxon Hill School’s Community Cafe Fund. It was lovely to meet the children and to hear of all the wonderful plans for its future.”
