A very big THANK YOU to everyone that has donated

special chocolates to help fill our bucket for Jamie!

It is now full to the top - and very heavy!


Scroll down the page to take a look at some of the fundraising events and generous donations made so far. If you have organised, or are taking part in, a fundraising event for Jamie's Appeal

please let us know so we can mention you on this page.

You can also see some photos of Jamie when he was well enough to come in and see us.


Our fundraising began with the PTA 'Walk into Spring' event, raising over £200.

A big THANK YOU to everyone - our school community is very special.


Jamie and his Mummy & Daddy

would like to say a very big


for all the cards, gifts and good wishes

sent to them from everyone in the

school community.



However, Jamie was NOT so sure

that his "New Nurse" knew what

she was supposed to be doing!


Can you guess who it is?



Brave Jamie made a brief visit into

school to see his friends in Year 1.

They were very pleased to see him!

Jamie took home his very own

bag of Pebble Pets!

Watch this page Jamie because we will

be adding more photographs to show

you all the things we are doing.


Everyone in school was really pleased to see Jamie when he came

for a visit with his Dad and joined us for lunch on Wednesday 30th May.

Will (Y6) & Georgia (Y3) Young raised £197.50 in just 2 hours! They visited granny in Northumberland and collected eggs from her hens & then came home to bake cakes - well, mum did! On Saturday 9th June they set up a stall outside the Co-operative in Fulford, battling gusts of wind and heavy showers. Rather than pricing cakes they asked for donations and were amazed at how generous people were - although Will did eat a lemon cake & a batch of chocolate chip cookies - which cost him a months pocket money!

  They also provided information to all the customers and, for a short period, they are allowed to have a collection pot at the shop.

The Co-operative policy is to nominate a charity each year and unfortunately it had already been allocated before Jamie became ill. However, the manager said he would help them in their endeavour to raise money for Jamie, so the pot will be there for a few weeks.


On the 10th June, at Dalby Forest, twenty eight people took part in Go Ape for Jamie!

Go Ape kindly reimbursed the ticket sale money back into Jamie's fund and
