Teddies for CHUF
North Durham Academy would like to thank Lois, Shannon, Tom and Shania for attending the CHUF’s Christmas party on Sunday.
At the event the students handed out teddies collected at the academy throughout November in aid of the Children’s Heart Unit Fund.
The event was held at the Hilton in Gateshead and the students dressed up in fancy dress to attend the party.
In total 481 teddies were collected for distribution at the event, and £1253.25 donated through the Big Give Christmas Challenge.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a match funding campaign where all donations given are doubled by key supporters of the charity and The Lake House Charitable Trust.
Charlotte Campbell, senior fundraising manager at CHUFS said “A massive thank you to Lois, Shannon, Tom and Shania – they were absolutely incredible!
The children loved meeting Elsa and Anna and Mr and Mrs Chufty! they were so brilliant with all of the kids and really did an amazing job!”
