Two Wellington Academy sisters Abi-rose and Summer Lacey have been recognised in school for their volunteering activities in the community. Over Christmas both the girls gave up their whole day on 23rd December to help put together the huge Christmas dinner at the Tidworth Community Centre for the homeless, less privileged and elderly. The girls spent the whole day moving boxes, wrapping gifts and setting up for the huge event which was a huge success. This activity as well as raising money for Help the Heroes and attending scouts would fill up most pre-teen’s spare time but the Lacey girls are too busy volunteering regularly for a charity called French Bulldog Saviours and ran a stall to raise money for the charity at the Academy’s Christmas Fayre raising just over £25 from a cake stall.
Mike Milner, the Academy Principal has nothing but praise for the girls. ‘During these times were the news is littered with children engaging more and more computer games and phones, it is nice to see some young people devoting their time to helping with real world issues’.
French Bulldog Saviours is a non-profit making breed-rescue charity run entirely by volunteers who strive to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home French Bulldogs in need or at risk, giving them a better chance of living a healthy and happy life in a permanent loving home www.frenchbulldogsaviours.org
