The Froebelian School Raises £1000s for Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Following two years of fundraising we were delighted to present Vickie Bowden and mascot Polly the Paramedic from Yorkshire Air Ambulance with a cheque for £6024.39.

Throughout the lockdowns and challenges over the last two years, the whole school community has come together to carry out some new and imaginative ways of fundraising; from a virtual Roman Marathon to hot chocolate days. One of our younger pupils embarked on a 3-day hike with her Dad across North Yorkshire raising over £1000 alone.

Mrs Dodds said: “I am overwhelmed by how the Froebelian family has embraced the fundraising over the last two years – with individual and group efforts from pupils, staff, parents, friends and the FPTA. It is a tremendous achievement to have raised such an astonishing amount.”

Vickie Bowden, West Yorkshire Regional Fundraiser, from Yorkshire Air Ambulance said: “The charity relies on donations to ensure we can continue to save lives across the region and make a difference to someone who needs our help.  The money that Froebelian has raised, pays for two helicopters to be deployed to help the people that need them – potentially saving two lives. We are incredibly grateful to everyone at the school for making such a magnificent contribution.”

Arrange a visit to the school, you can meet some of our staff and pupils.
