AS MANY of you read in a previous issue, St Michael’s church in Aughton has recently had the lead from it’s roof stolen and you weren’t the only ones!
A member of the church’s school, Aughton St Michael’s CE, read the story and was so concerned that his church was in such a predicament he had to act. Aaron Tabarn, 10, approached his teacher and class mates to see if they would help him raise money for the Church roof fund. After many discussion and ideas, he and his class organised a cake sale for the pupils at break time. When explaining the event, Mr Clare, who is Aaron’s teacher, commented that: “The response by Year Six was so great that we had to hold the sale over two days as there were just too many cakes to sell on one day!”
The sale raised an amazing £313.18 over the two days and Aaron presented the donation to Reverend Andrew Housley at the school’s Passover service on Wednesday, April 3.
Reverend Housley gratefully accepted the donations and said: “The generosity and Christian charity of the pupils makes me proud to be associated with the school, but a special thanks has to go to Aaron who, along with his friends, has made this whole event possible”.
