50th Anniversary of the Christingle

Mrs Gilman, Canon Graham, Mrs Burgess and one of our previous Governor’s Deirdre Waddell had the pleasure of taking 30 KS2 children to Gloucester Cathedral to attend a special service. This service celebrated 50 years of the work for the Children’s society. The service was led by the Bishop of Gloucester, The Right Reverend Rachel Treweek who talked to the children about Christingle services and the role of The Children’s Society. Felix Reglar and Sasha James presented a cheque for £610.60. This was the amount collected from our own Christingle Service just before Christmas. The children were impeccably behaved and I was thrilled to receive emails from both Canon Graham and Deidre saying what a pleasure it had been to accompany the children and both commented on their exemplary behavior.
