The Rotary Club of Palgrave was excited to attend the Sleeping Children Around The World school assembly at Palgrave Public School this morning in support of their amazing fundraiser for this charity. Students attended in pyjamas in recognition of the fact that their fundraising efforts provide bed kits for children in less fortunate countries.

The photo shows the student fundraising committee with their awesome teacher Patrick Patten just prior to the assembly.

The result was announced. The school had raised $2459.00 which meant they will give 70 bed kits to the charity for use overseas for school aged boys and girls.

The Rotary Club has pledged to match the school's fundraising efforts, so now 140 bed kits will be purchased.

Our club is so proud of Palgrave Public School's students and staff who were involved in this venture.
