The Junior School fundraises for Hope 4 Harmonie

8 December 2017

Junior School pupils and their families have raised more than £1,000 to support Harmonie-Rose Allen, a Bath three year old who lost all her limbs to meningitis when she was just ten months old.

The money was raised after the Junior School adopted the Hope 4 Harmonie fundraising campaign as their school charity for the year.  Fundraising efforts to date have included a family cycle ride at Castle Combe circuit and a cake sale, and more than £1,000 has already been raised.

Harmonie-Rose and her parents, Freya and Ross, all came to visit the Junior School earlier this week, so that the children could meet Harmonie and find out how their efforts help the family. During her visit to school, Harmonie-Rose meet some Year 3 children at KES, and also took part in a whole school assembly.

Mrs Chapman, a teacher at King Edward’s Junior School said:  “Our children were so inspired by meeting Harmonie-Rose and are determined to raise as much as they can during the year.”  After meeting Harmonie-Rose, some of the King Edward’s Junior School children spoke about their efforts to raise money for Harmonie and what it was like meeting her.

  • Jasmine – “I took part in the Castle Combe Cycle day and it was great fun. It feels good to raise money for charity and to help others.”
  • Tom – “It was exciting to meet Harmonie-Rose and she is very brave. She likes having her photo taken and walking around on her new legs! It is good that we are raising money for her charity.”
  • Georgina – “Harmonie is very cute and confident. She wasn’t shy about talking to us and answering our questions”
  • Simran – “It was great meeting her, she is really nice and funny”

The Junior School will be fundraising on behalf of Hope 4 Harmonie for the entire year and more fundraising activities are planned for the Spring term.
