Charity Non Uniform Day - Friday 24th April 2015

Dear parent/guardian,

You may already be aware; that one of our year 11 pupils has been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia and now needs a stem cell transplant. The school is working closely with the pupil, his family and the Anthony Nolan Trust.

The Anthony Nolan Trust is a registered charity that find matching donors for any person in need of a transplant. As this is a charity they rely heavily on fundraising events and awareness to support them.
 
There lifesaving work relies on the generous financial support of individuals and organisations. It costs £100 to add each person to the bone marrow register and with more funds they can save more lives.

As a school, we have decided to hold a non-uniform day on Friday 24th April and ask that pupils donate £1, which will be given to the Anthony Nolan Trust to help support not only a pupil in our school but also to save the lives of others.

More information about the Anthony Nolan Trust can be found at

Pupils who wish to attend school in non-uniform need to contribute £1 on the day. This needs to be handed in to form tutors during registration time.   

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at the school on 0121 566 6666 or via email
hrobbs@fourdwellingsacademy.org or dmiranda@fourdwellingsacademy.org  if you wish to discuss this further.

Kind regards,

Mrs. H. Robbs
Head of Year 11

Ms. D. Miranda
Assistant Head of Key Stage Four
