A Hornchurch school raised more than �500 for a children’s charity

A Hornchurch school has raised more than �500 for First Step at its Christmas events.

Parents and carers donated money during RJ Mitchell’s carol concert and infant and junior Christmas productions. The school raised �566 towards First Step’s services to help support children with special needs and/or disabilities, and their families.

Barry Road, headteacher at RJ Mitchell School, said: “It’s an amazing effort from a small school. Each year the children of the school decide which charity to support and I am delighted that we continue to support such a worthy cause. I look forward to raising even more money for First Step in 2013.”
