During our assembly today, we were joined by Elmer the Elephant as well as representatives from The Heart of Kent Hospice and Bellway Homes. This was to launch the start of an exciting competition in support of the Heart of Kent Hospice's Elmer Trail.
During assembly, we learnt that it costs 4 million pounds to run the hospice every year. Of this amount, the fundraising team are responsible for raising £3 million! To help them do this, the Heart of Kent Hospice have teamed up with local businesses and schools to create an elephant parade of 70 elephants in three trails across Maidstone.
Bellway Homes have very kindly donated a baby elephant for us to design and create! As a school, we are very excited and can't wait to get started! We will be creating our designs in class and then voting for the final version which will use to decorate our baby elephant!
