To our Lympsham Families,
A team of staff members from Lympsham CofE Academy and Lympsham Preschool are on a mission to raise some much-needed funds for Macmillan Cancer support. The team will be taking part in a Marathon, Mighty Hike across the Gower Peninsular in West Wales on Saturday 8th July. Mrs Whiting, Mrs Addis, Mrs Caulfield, Mrs Hancock, Mr Scriven, Ms Evans, Miss Livingston, Vicky Evans, Josie Gratton, Sara Robinson, Kelly Jamieson, Mrs D'Ovidio and Mrs Wade are all signed up and training hard with weekly walks after work and weekend treks with the family.
In late 2022, one of our staff members was diagnosed with cancer and whilst the prognosis is incredibly hopeful it reminded us how important it is to support charities like Macmillan and to also come together to support each other as a team. Our Team captain and Headteacher Mrs Whiting thought a charity challenge would be a lot of fun and somehow, lots of colleagues agreed to sign up for a marathon hike! We are praying for a beautiful sunny day in July and lots of pounds in the charity pot and together we will be thrilled to be raising money for such an important charity like Macmillan.
To help in our mission to raise a total of £2000 for Team Lympsham we are hosting a Macmillan Coffee morning on Tuesday 13th June from 9-10am in the school hall. Cakes will also be available to purchase after school on that day. If you would like to join us for a cuppa and cake, we would love you to join us or If you are a keen baker and would be happy to donate some cakes, then we would also be most grateful.

Thank you in advance for your support and good cheer as we attempt a very long walk at a very tiring part of the academic year!!
