Children in Need 2017

Posted on: 20 November 2017

For this year’s Children in Need, the young people at Atkinson designed and helped run a very productive day.  This involved young people baking a variety of cakes and pastries. Staff and visitors were asked to give a donation in return for these delicious cakes.

Throughout the school day, an exercise bike was kept in motion by the young people and staff. This endurance exercise was rewarded by a joint effort of completing over 140 km.  This is the equivalent of cycling from Exeter to beyond Bournemouth!

Children in Need was an enjoyable day which raised £108 for this very worthwhile charity.
