YOUNGSTERS at Rastrick High School have helped to grant several wishes at a children’s hospice.

The school has been busy raising funds through a non-uniform day and a bake sale in order to buy essential items for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice after visiting the premises in January.

The students had £1,098 to spend on the wish list items which the hospice needs before it can open.

And during the visit the students made a note of the items, on footprint icons which indicated exactly what was needed in each room.

They then came away and made a draft list of items they wanted to buy before making their final wish list.

Jason Costello, Partnership Development Manager at the Hospice said: “The commitment shown from the students and staff at Rastrick High with this gift means that our children and families can enjoy some wonderful experiences together that will last a life time.”

The money has funded many things including a shower/changing trolley for the hydrotherapy pool, cupboards and four blackboards.
