Rupert House pupils boost Daisy’s Dream

PUPILS at Rupert House School in Henley raised more than £1,000 for a children’s charity.

PUPILS at Rupert House School in Henley raised more than £1,000 for a children’s charity.

A cheque was presented to Gill Stevens, director of Daisy’s Dream, which helps bereaved children.

The youngsters raised the money by selling cakes for 50p each at five events, organised by the Friends’ of Rupert House, throughout the year.

Mrs Stevens told the pupils: “Thank you so much for raising all that money for Daisy’s Dream and for all your hard work. That has made a huge difference to lots of boys and girls we work with.

“They are having a difficult time - perhaps somebody in their family is very poorly or perhaps, sadly, somebody very close to them has died.”



The charity helps more than 700 children every year and Mrs Stevens told the Henley Standard: “What’s really brilliant is when children raise money for other children. They are helping other children in their community.”
