St Anne’s CofE Primary School in Wandsworth is holding a sponsored walk in aid of the Glenfell Tower fire victims.

The year 3 pupils, who make up the pupil voice committee for charitable events, suggested the school take an active part in the fundraising so the whole school will take part on Wednesday, June 28.

The children set a fundraising target for us of £500.

According to a spokesperson for the school: “We will be leaving school at 9.20am and walking down to King George’s Park. Parents and carers have been invited to join the walk.

"The children will be carrying banners and playing music while we walk and once we have completed the walk we will gather together for collective worship through prayer and singing.

“This will be close to the two tower blocks where most of our children live and why they feel a special affinity for the families and community of Grenfell Tower.

“The whole event will demonstrate how our St Anne’s community are supporting another London community in body and spirit.

“It is short notice, however, we have invited Jeremy Corbyn MP as he is the constituency MP and we have also invited the London Mayor and the Mayor of Wandsworth and are waiting for their replies.”
