Whole school gets messy in colour blast fundraiser for Bluebell Wood

Pupils at a North Anston school saw out the autumn half term with a multi-coloured bang as more than 200 children got messy to support a children’s hospice.

Separated into classroom bubbles, each group of children dashed around a track on the school’s playground while school staff covered them from head to toe in all the colours of the rainbow as part of Bluebell Wood Hospice’s ‘Colour Throw’.

Chellsea Brown, whose little boy Sonny, four, took part on the day, said: “Sonny had a great time in the Colour Throw helping to raise money for a charity we’re very fond of.

“Sonny has cerebral palsy and I honestly got a little bit emotional watching him joining in, laughing and smiling, and having so much fun with his friends.

“Yet again, he didn’t let cerebral palsy stop him getting stuck in. A huge well done everyone who took part – it looked like so much fun.”

Alex Wirth, head teacher at Anston Greenlands Primary, said: “It was a wonderful way to see out what’s been an unusual half term, and it’s safe to say everyone was rainbow coloured by home time.

“Bluebell Wood is a brilliant local charity and taking part in their Colour Throw was such a fun way to show our support and help raise funds.

“Thank you very much to Bluebell Wood for the opportunity and to all the children, school staff and parents and carers for making it such a success.”

The charity launched the virtual ‘Colour Throw’, which people can participate in at home, school or work, after having to cancel its flagship ‘Colour Dash’ event this year.
