Middleton Primary Raise £1,800 for Earthquake Appeal
22 February 2023
Moved by pleas for urgent assistance to help the people of Turkey and Syria, parents and staff have donated over £1800 to Oxfam’s earthquake appeal, following a mufti day held at Middleton.
Pupils enjoyed wearing non-uniform for a voluntary £1 donation. The monies were collected in school and via a JustGiving page which will remain open until 30 March 2023.
Headteacher Rachel Roberts said:
“As a school community, we were incredibly saddened by the devastating and tragic events in Turkey and Syria. With a large number of Middleton families, who were originally from these two countries, we were compelled to contribute to the fundraising appeals to support people caught up in the disaster.
“We hope that the donation will help survivors, aided by Oxfam and the Disasters Emergency Committee, with food, medicine and shelter.”
