JSA presents cheque for charity funds raised to local school

JSA presents cheque for charity funds raised to local school
 
Director of JSA, Sarah Woodruff, met the staff and children of Colnbrook School in South Oxhey when she presented a cheque to Head teacher, Richard Hill, on Friday 14 January.
 
The cheque for over 550 was raised by staff at JSA during 2010 to support Colnbrook School, which is one of its four chosen charities. They raised the money in a variety of unusual ways, including a day of Halloween and Christmas themed outfits, bike rides, cake sales, a dress down month and even a wear-a-wig day! The other three charities supported by JSA are the Peace Hospice (also based locally in Watford), Help for Heroes and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
 
The school is close to the heart of staff at JSA as some know families with children who attend the school. Colnbrook caters for up to 80 children with special needs and is in the process of renovating its playground. The cheque from JSA will go towards new outdoor facilities. A new climbing frame and slide are already in place at the school, which also plans to provide facilities for outdoor drama lessons and theatre productions.
 
Journalist Adam Binnie from the Watford Observer was also present to cover the event and take photographs. His report went live on the Observer website on Monday 17 January.
 
Richard Hill, Head teacher at Colnbrook, said: The money will go towards our playground project. We're investing in new and exciting resources to encourage the children to play together and communicate with each other.
 
Sarah Woodruff said: We are delighted to be able to help Colnbrook through our fundraising activities and it is a charity that JSA staff personally voted for as it is close to our hearts. It's the first time we've supported Colnbook but now that weve had a chance to see the amazing work they do here and how much they rely on donations, we are committed to finding additional ways to support the school throughout 2011.
