During the last week of term, the Learning Support Department and some of our students have been holding a Christmas stall to raise money for The UK Sepsis Trust. S adly, one of our girls recently lost her mum to sepsis and so The UK Sepsis Trust is a charity with a special connection. The UK Sepsis Trust was founded in 2012 by worldleading sepsis expert, NHS consultant Dr Ron Daniels BEM. They work hard to raise awareness of sepsis, with the aim of ending preventable deaths and improving outcomes for survivors. Their “Just ask: Could it be sepsis?” campaign has already helped to raise sepsis awareness among the general public by 28% and they believe that earlier diagnosis and treatment across the UK, could save up to 14,000 lives a year; making it a very worthy cause to raise money for! As we go to press, the girls are busy making a range of Christmas crafts that will be available to buy at lunchtime on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th December. Some that are already made are pictured here but the rest are still in production. There will be all sorts to choose from, such as Christmas tree bookmarks, pom pom Christmas characters and tree decorations, as well as plenty of Christmas themed baked goods. We will be back in the new year to let you all know how much the stall raises, but in the meantime the Learning Support Department would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and we hope that you enjoy the holidays.
