Friday 18th March 2022:
As I went into the Hall to do my assembly this morning to be confronted by lots of smiling faces in a sea of red it really made me appreciate how truly lucky we are here in the UK.
Days like ‘Red Nose’ day are fun, and the ideas and activities that people come up with to raise money for such events are often extremely creative, but all of that doesn’t detract from the fact that we are raising money for those less fortunate than ourselves. It is such an important message for children: that there are children in the world who have so much less than they do, and that there are things we can all do to help.
The children at Riverview are kind, thoughtful and eager to help and I hope that they carry on like that for their whole lives ………………. unless of course we suddenly don’t have anyone less fortunate in the world, which is a whole other story!
