Fundraising Efforts at Tresco & Bryher School
Tresco & Bryher Primary School children brightened up the island the other day when they toured Tresco selling cakes in order to raise funds for charity.
Their chosen cause, International Animal Rescue, works to help save orang-utans in Indonesian Borneo from endangerment. After having spent the day baking the pupils visited homes and workplaces on Tresco equipped with sweet treats and placards informing the island community both about their chosen cause and the problems caused by the destruction of the rainforest.
When asked about their fundraising efforts, Emily Hobbs said, “It was fun making the cakes with Daddy at home and I liked going around the island telling people about what’s happening to the rainforest”, while Cullen Oyler commented “We want to help the orang-utans because they can’t help themselves”.
The children raised a whopping £155 for the charity and even got a thank you on the International Animal Rescue Facebook page, which you can view here.
