8th November 2021 — Following two years of fundraising, The Froebelian School in Leeds was delighted to present The Yorkshire Air Ambulance with a cheque for over £6000.

The school was delighted to welcome Vickie Bowden and mascot Polly the Paramedic from the charity to present them with a cheque.

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 three-day hike with her Dad across North Yorkshire raising over £1,000.

Headteacher, Catherine 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."

The Froebelian School (Coed 3-11) is a day school in Yorkshire.
