A SPECIAL VISITOR
We were delighted to welcome Carol Holcroft to our school this afternoon. Carol's daughters used to come to BDS many years ago so it was lovely to show her the school as it is today. Carol spoke to the council about her daughter, Amy, who died from cancer a few years ago. Whilst she was undergoing treatment she received a goody bag with lots of treats in order to make her feel better. Carol said that it made a world of difference to Amy and so now, in memory of her daughter, Carol has been making these 'Amy Swag' bags for other children undergoing medical treatment. She showed us some of the contents when she met with the council. The children now feel they would like to compile a bag for other sick teenagers. We hope to do some fund raising in the near future.
Thank you Carol, for coming along to school and sharing your story about Amy.
