A project to build a play pirate ship in memory of a Falmouth schoolgirl needs the support of the community.
Two weeks ago St Francis Primary School launched the Pirate Ship for a Princess project in memory of former pupil Chloe Edwards, who died aged just eight years old in January from cancer of the nervous system, Neuroblastoma. Now the school is bidding for up to £25,000 of funding in order to launch the ship as quickly as possible.
In order to win the money, however, the school needs as many people as possible to vote for it on social networking site Facebook. To vote for St Francis visit https://apps.facebook.com/wicksteed/howitworks Then view the gallery and find St Francis School by filtering the region to South West England.
Nicky Sutton, St Francis’s music, art, dance and drama teacher is urging everyone who voted to then share the link on their Facebook page, to encourage others to vote.
In the meantime fundraising continues with a fashion show at school on Friday, December 7.
Anyone clearing out ready for Christmas has been asked to consider donating good quality children’s and adults clothes and accessories to the school, which can be modelled and sold on the night to boost the fundraising total.
Any clothes shops wanting to advertise their Christmas stock should also get in contact with the school office. Picture by EF the Pirate Ship for a Princess launch at St Francis
