This year, once again, Form I and II pupils participated in NI Cancer Fund for Children’s sponsored reading event: “Read On”. Time in English lessons between the 21-25th October 2019 was committed to reading as many pages/novels as possible, in order to raise much-needed funds for this worthwhile local charity.
Yesterday we welcomed Rebecca Oates from NI Cancer Fund for Children to our junior assembly, who shared information about how their donations will be put to use. Amber Mallon FII presented a cheque for a total of £1287, on behalf of the FI and II classes of BRA.
Thanks to the generosity of the wider BRA community of family and friends, the dedication of our young readers and support of the English Department, local children diagnosed with cancer and their families will be provided with financial and therapeutic support in the months to come.
