Egg-cellent response to Easter appeal
A huge haul of 101 Easter eggs has been donated by students, staff and parents and carers in response to a call out from 1 Yorks Regiment. Captain Lofty Simpson-Worboys, Unit Welfare Officer at 1 Yorks, called in to school to collect the Eggs and was delighted to meet Nishi and Amber, Year 7 students, who are from service families. Together with donations from other local schools and organisations, over 1,400 Easter Eggs will be delivered to ‘Looked After Children’ in North Yorkshire.
Captain Simpson-Worboys said: “Thank you so much to all the children, parents and staff from Richmond school who kindly donated an Easter egg, every chocolate treat will bring a smile to a “looked after child” on Easter Sunday. The amount of kindness and generosity has been amazing, we have enough Easter eggs to give every child in the County a very special Easter.”
Sarah Gleave, Services Children’s Advocate at Richmond School and Sixth Form College, added: “Thank you to Captain Simpson-Worboys and 1 Yorks Regiment for coordinating this local project, and to all members of our school community who contributed. The eggs are a token of our care and support for all who can’t be with family this Easter, for whatever reason.”
