Last Friday, 5th June, local schools and businesses were encouraged to get 'Sunny for Money' by hosting a mufti fundraising activity, to help raise funds for the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity (FNHC) in Sunny Sunflower month.
Haddenham St Mary's CE School was one of the participating schools, where children came to school dressed in lovely bright and sunny summer attire.
As a special treat, the Charity's new Florrie's Children's Team mascot 'Florrie Bear', made a visit to the school on the day.
As the pictures show (click to enlarge the image) the children were beside themselves at the sheer uninhibited joy of seeing Florrie Bear, and having the chance to enjoy a personal hug with Florrie (or a high-five if that was "too soppy" for some!)
Commenting on the fundraiser, Emma Carroll, FNHC Community Fundraising Manager said: "This was a fun way for local school children to get involved in supporting local hospice care. In the last five years over £50,000 has been raised from school fundraisers, so we hope we can call on this fantastic support once again."
Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity needs to raise over £600,000 this year to ensure the continued funding of local hospice care services for adults and children.
