Crazy Shoe Day

On Thursday 18th May, Churchill held their fundraising event to raise money for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). SMA is a genetic disease that causes muscle weakness and progressive loss of movement and is the leading genetic cause of death of infants and toddlers. We had an amazing ‘Crazy Shoe Day’, where the children could come into school wearing their chosen ‘crazy’ shoes for a donation to charity. All the children had the opportunity to enter a ‘design your own crazy shoe’ competition for an entry payment, with the exciting prize of their own design being made into a pair of shoes for them. At the end of the day we had a delicious doughnut and ‘shoe’ keyring sale! The event was a wonderful success, with us raising £600 for the SMA Trust, who are dedicated to finding a cure and treatments for SMA.
