Thank you Holy Family School Waltham Forest

Holy Family School and First Give

A big thank you to Holy Family School and a special thank you to the 6 children who presented with great skill on behalf of Carefree Kids and also collected over £85 for our charity through the sale of snacks and donations at their event on 16 May.

We would also like to thank the school staff and First Give for supporting the students with this.

Although we didn’t win the £1,000 it was a great night and wonderful to see all the effort, creativity and passion the children put into their presentations.
