Year 6 sell their handmade, upcycled gifts to raise money for WWF and World Land Trust

As part of their Better World topic, Year 6 hosted an eco pop-up shop where they sold their incredible handmade, upcycled items to friends and family. Their creations ranged from scented candles to planters, jewellery, and scrunchies. We were so impressed by the level of creativity and how committed they were to raise as much money as possible. 

We’re pleased to share that the pop-up shop raised an incredible £516 for charity! We have since used some of the money to adopt six endangered animals from the WWF; an elephant, jaguar, amur leopard, dolphin, gorilla, and a rhino. 

The remainder of the money was donated to World Land Trust to save an incredible three acres of rainforest - an acre per Year 6 class! 

A huge well done to all of the girls for their fantastic efforts and showing such passion for the environment!
