Dear Parent /Carers, Friday 9th March 2018
‘Snowdogs Discover Ashford’ is a magical arts trail taking place in Ashford throughout Autumn 2018. This large-scale, public art event is teaming up with The Pilgrims Hospice to raise funds for this amazing charity and to bring ‘the arts’ to everyone.
Pilgrims Hospice provide invaluable support for families who are coping with incurable illness, to live well in every moment. The majority of their funding comes from the general public and as a school we wish to support charities within our community. We are keen to provide our children with opportunities to develop their self-esteem and fundraising is a fantastic tool to do this. Working on this project will help to increase our children’s self-confidence and give them a real sense of achievement. By making a difference to their local community, we hope the children will also develop a sense of social responsibility.
The project will be provide schools with resources to enable a better understanding of supporting children who may have experienced loss in any form. Teaching is age appropriate and is linked to ‘The Snowman’ and ‘The Snowman and the Snowdog’.
Thank you for your support. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Mrs C Webb and Mr D Walker
