Sidmouth school’s Christmas card plea to businesses
IT may only be July, but pupils at Sidmouth’s St Nicholas Junior School want town businesses to support a fundraising Christmas card project and raise much-needed cash.
The Corporate Christmas Card, an initiative of the Art Projects for Schools (APFS), will give traders the chance to buy digitally printed cards supplied by children.
Each pack of cards sold will raise funds for St Nicholas School.
Headteacher Paul Walker said: “A massive 25per cent of the total Christmas card order value, placed by a business from designs produced by our children, will be paid into our school fundraising account.
“We hope that like us, local businesses will feel that the children’s designs bring a very personal touch to Christmas wishes.”
