Our children have been helping to fight disease, poverty and prejudice by fundraising and collecting donations for Lepra. Everyone in Classes One to Eight, and some in Nursery, took part in a Fun and Fitness session as well as other sponsored activities and were able to raise £2500 for the international charity.

Lepra works in India, Bangladesh and Mozambique and focuses on people who are trapped by disease, poverty and prejudice. They work to improve not only the health of an individual but their overall well-being and livelihood too.

Angela Lisle, Lepra community fundraiser, can be seen here presenting a special plaque to two of our charity champions. She said:

'Rockcliffe School have been great supporters of Lepra over the years and have helped us to change so many lives. We think it's wonderful that their pupils are so dedicated to making a difference to those less fortunate than themselves'.
