Newton the Bunny braves it again!

Newton and the PTFA were out and about again this week to help raise money for the Grantham Deaf Children Society, Grantham Foodbank and the school.

 A number of brave children, staff and parents toughed it out on the streets of Grantham last night. They were doing it to raise money for the Grantham Deaf Children's Society, Grantham Foodbank and the school.

Temperatures never got above freezing but that didn't throw ice onto their spirits. Newton danced and jigged around the streets as the kind residents dug into their pockets to give to worthy causes. £230 raised last night with £1200 coming from sponsorship. Last year nearly £3000 was raised and then donated to local charities. It helped the school put markings on its new playground and buy a shelter.

We have already had generous donations from local businesses who have sponsored the float. We would like to thank the following for their wonderful support.

If you have a reflector jacket please bring it along however, we do have some which have been donated.  Also if you have some Bunny ears please wear those too.  (one pound from the pound shop!)
We walk some miles over the nights so I really do suggest sensible footwear!
We look forward to catching up with you.
