Three young pupils at St Helen's C of E Primary School in Abbotsham organised a sponsored silence for two charities close to their hearts: Juvenile Arthritis and Devon Air Ambulance.

Both of Ellie’s parents were airlifted after a road traffic collision in October 2015 and one of Eloise’s family members also had need of the service. 

Pupils Holly Flood, Ellie Johns and Eloise Prouse are pictured above with their certificates and teacher, Ben Kent, and Devon Air Ambulance volunteer, Chrissie Sloman, at the presentation on the 14th May.

A huge thanks from us for raising the funds that help us to get to people when they most need us. 

If your school would like to get involved in some fundraising for us then do share your ideas - we'd love to hear from you. Alternatively, of you have a fundraising story you'd like to share then you can do so here. Your stories make a big difference.
