Teachers Score Top Marks For Supporting Their NHS’

16th April 2020

TWO teachers in Sheffield have gone the extra mile to raise money for Sheffield Hospitals Charity and support their NHS.

Both Mrs Harrison and Mrs Rowland, teachers at Dobcroft Infant School, worked in the school over the Easter bank holiday weekend to ensure that it was able to stay open for the children of key workers. And as if that wasn’t enough, they also wanted to do their bit to say ‘thank you’ to amazing NHS staff.

Mrs Harrison, Deputy Head Teacher, ran 10km around the school on Good Friday, whilst Mrs Rowland, Head Teacher, cycled 15km around the school on Easter Monday!

To date, the two tireless teachers have raised more than £2,000, but they need your help to go even further.

Vicky Harrison, who was speaking afterwards, said: “As we were in school to look after the children of key workers over Easter weekend, we thought it was the perfect time to raise some money as well.

“We know how hard those amazing NHS staff are working to look after us all and so it is only right that we did our little bit to say ‘thank you’ and raise some cash for them at a time when they need it most.

“We’ve already smashed our target, but we want to raise even more so that we can do more to support the hospitals in Sheffield. So if anybody is able to donate or can share our justgiving page, we would so appreciate it.”

David Reynolds, Executive Director of Sheffield Hospitals Charity, said: “This is a remarkable effort from two wonderful teachers. We are seeing so much fundraising to support the NHS at this time and it really has blown us away how communities are coming together – to Mrs Harrison and Mrs Rowland we say ‘thank you’.

“We want to help them smash their fundraising target even further so please do visit their justgiving page.

“If you feel inspired to play your part then please get in touch with the charity team who will be very happy to help you.”
