Year 6 boys have been writing a newspaper to raise money for Earthquake Relief in Turkey and Syria

A group of Lower Figures boys have raised £53 pounds so far for Earthquake Relief in Turkey and Syria by producing and selling their newspaper.

When we asked Jack C why him and his peers decided to embark on this writing journey, he said this:

“So, one day last half term I (Jack C), Harman S, James H, Max R and Ben H sat down on a bench and thought about a way to raise money for the NSPCC at school. James suggested that we could make a SJB newspaper, named the Weekly Beaumont. It took us a week to make it but finally we started to sell and within the first two days we made a whopping £32.00! After this success Maxi M and Raiyen M joined and started to work on the following weeks newspaper. However, recently (6th February) there was a disastrous earthquake in Turkey and Syria. As soon as this happened, we gave the money we raised to their support.   

Every week, Tuesday to Thursday, you will see us selling newspapers at 7:50 – 8:10am, please consider buying one for charity!”
