Red, White & Blue Day - Friday 7 November
6 November 2014
We are having our Red, White and Blue Day on Friday 7th November 2014. This is a day where we as a school can show our support for the huge number of Service families in the UK. Red, White and Blue Day is a national campaign to raise money and awareness of the three Armed Forces charities. Wearing the patriotic colours of red, white and blue, the children will be raising money for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, The Soldiers’ Charity and the RAF Benevolent Fund, who provide a full range of care for all generations of the Armed Forces family. This campaign is run annually by the three official Service charities, supported by the three Services themselves. It’s an opportunity to highlight the work of the Armed Forces and the difficulties their families face.
We ask you to pay £1 per family to support this day and your child/children can wear non-uniform colours of red, white and blue. This day is also to remember 100 years of the start of World War 1 and Remembrance Day. Our Year 6’s will be reading poems they have written in our Friday assembly on this day. All parents are welcome to attend.
