Miss Kyriacos runs virtual Boxercise classes every Tuesday and Thursday at 4pm through her company called E.I Boxing. This Sunday some Pinewood School Communities staff, friends and family took part in a 30-minute Boxercise class to raise money for the 2.6 challenge.
As of the morning of the 27th April, an amazing amount of £251 has been raised from the class and everyone felt very sweaty, yet amazing at the end. Should you wish to further contribute towards this total, and to support a very worthy charitable cause to help save UK charities, you are able to donate by clicking here
A huge well done to Mr McDevitt, Mrs Morrissey, Miss Glithero, Miss Oswick, Miss Powers, Mrs Iameo; and to all friends and family that joined in. Thank you all for your kind donations.
A huge thanks to everyone who has helped us smash our goal of £1000 in under 24 hours!
We are committed to spending all money raised on this cause and have ordered additional printers and supplies to enable us to increase our production to around 50 – 60 reusable face shields per day. All of these will be going to fulfil live orders with local hospitals via the 3DCrowd.uk national project.
We will be closing this fundraiser on Thursday 30 April but until then, we will continue to put all donations towards this project.
Thanks again for all those who have generously supported the pupils and Pinewood School in achieving this goal!
