A Fleetwood school is being catapulted back into the 1980s as students and staff celebrate our Grin and Wear It day.
On Friday, St Wulstan’s and St Edmond’s Catholic Primary School will be boasting bright colours, leg warmers and shoulder pads to help us raise money for Trinity Hospice and Brian House children’s hospice in our Hospice Heroes campaign.
Deputy headteacher Maria Doherty said: “We’ve had children asking if they can spray-dye their hair, so we’re expecting a colourful day.
“Trinity and Brian House is a charity we support on a regular basis - it’s an important charity of ours.
“We ask our parents, pupils and staff to vote on charities they want us to support and Brian House is always a popular one. In fact it got quite a heavy donation from us last year.
“We had a child who died at the hospice last year, so it’s also a charity close to our heart”.
After hearing about our Grin and Wear It day, the pupils and staff voted on a 1980s theme for their fancy dress day.
“Everyone is really looking forward to it,” Maria added.
We are asking for as many people as possible living and working in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre to take part in Grin and Wear It on Friday.
All money raised on the day will go towards our Hospice Heroes campaign for Brian House and Trinity Hospice.
We need to raise £200,000 for a massive refurbishment, currently taking place at the hospice on Low Moor Road, Bispham.
Our money, together with a £280,000 government grant, will pay for the creation of single bedrooms at Trinity, as well as quiet rooms for privacy.
At Brian House the bedrooms will be made brighter and the living area made bigger.
