Just before schools broke up for the summer holidays we had a flurry of amazing fundraising from students around the UK. Take a look to see some of the brilliant schools that have supported us in July …
Barnham Primary School’s production of ‘Fleeced’.
Students from Barnham Primary school worked incredibly hard this term to put on two fantastic performances of the musical ‘Fleeced’. The children in years five and six invited their families, friends and teachers to watch their production for free but asked for donations for Children on the Edge.
The students raised an incredible £207 from their performances, which was presented to Fundraising Officer Charlotte Callin in a special school assembly in July.
Head of Years five and six, Robbie Collins said ‘‘Thank you to Charlotte for coming in the other day. She did such a fantastic job and was absolutely brilliant in talking through the amazing work you all do. The children loved her and came away really enthused to do more fundraising for you in the future.’

Major Mick keeps rowing for Ukrainian refugees
'Major Mick' continued with his inspiring fundraising efforts this month, clocking up more rowing miles his homemade tin boat, 'Tintanic II'. At the start of the month he appeared on a special episode of BBC's Countryfile, showing how communities around the New Forest are supporting Ukrainian refugees. You can catch the episode on BBC iPlayer. Major Mick's section starts at 36 minutes.
Later in July, Mick rowed across the Solent from Hurst Castle to Colwell Bay, the crossing of around a mile took an hour. Major Mick has raised over £8000 to date for Children on the Edge.
