We know that many people locally are generously giving to the Crowd Funding site set up for Ben Crawford. Staff and students here wanted to add their donations to the fund and we ran a non-uniform day on Friday July 20th to raise money for Ben’s family. Big hearted staff, students and parents gave over £1,500 and all of the proceeds will go to the fund.
In addition every year at our annual Sports Awards Evening the Head of PE, Michael Mann, always runs a spirited auction of sporting items. Knowing that all of the proceeds of this year’s auction would also go to Ben’s fund, generous parents raised a further £475 that we will add to the proceeds of the non-uniform day.
We pride ourselves on being an extended family at Minsthorpe and, as with all families at a time of tragedy, we try to do what we can to help.
