  Year 6 pupils came up with the brilliant idea of a sponsored walk from their school in Athersley to the Town Hall and back in aid of Barnsley Hospice.Holy Trinity hospice presentation 3 (Copy)

  They were equipped with buckets to collect money along the way and were accompanied by their teacher, Lee Mullen and teaching assistant, Carol Eckford.

 They raised a fantastic amount through donations and sponsorship and the pupils presented a huge cheque for £1809.34 to Sarah Hattersley from Barnsley Hospice at a special assembly in school.
