BBEY LENS February 2017 Hair today, gone tomorrow! Kind Cuts Vol 3: Issue No. Thirty Excellence Through Partnership



CHARITY CHOP Lauren Percival from class 2P had over a 30cm length of her hair cut off on 4th of February and she has donated it to The Little Princess Trust. This was something that Lauren decided to do after seeing a programme about hair donation on TV. The Little Princess Trust make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to illness and cancer treatment, using hair that has been donated by members of the public. Each wig costs between £350 and £500 to make and The Little Princess Trust provides them free of charge. I have set up a 'just giving' page so that people can donate. The address is : https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Maxine-Percival should anyone wish to donate. Thanks to Lauren’s Mom for the story. HEALTHY LIFESTYLES Abbey is working hard to promote 'Healthy Lifestyles' by encouraging the children to take part in physical exercise and to eat healthily. Being active can help you keep your heart healthy and reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes. Alongside Beat The Street, we are supporting 'Health Sandwell' who are promoting a regional campaign to encourage fathers to increase their physical activity levels. You will have received an envelope with a map and information on free services and 'low cost family passes' , for services across Sandwell. These may include Family Swim sessions, Football, Mini Golf, Karate and many more. Have a look at great activities in our local area! FOA CAKE SALE On Friday 17th February we will be having a Valentine's Day themed Cake Sale, after school in the Infant and Junior playgrounds. All cake donations gratefully received. Friends of Abbey ❤
