RNLI Fundraiser

Today Eskdale children have been raising money for the RNLI.

We had a visit from Jayne, who was part of the RNLI, and the children were inspired to raise money to help.

Celebrating over 200 years as a lifeboat station, Hartlepool now operates two lifeboats. The crews have been presented with 23 awards for gallantry, including one gold medal

The children dressed in red and yellow clothes and took part in a wellie tossing competition. After each class competed they then filled up a pair of wellies with change to donate to the RNLI.

What a great cause!

Below are a few links which were shared with children when Jayne visited school.
