Students from the Institute of Education (IoE) organised a book sale recently in aid of local charity Daisy’s Dream, which supports children and young people going through bereavement.
The students, all on the IoE’s BA (Hons)Children’s Development and Learning (BA CDL) programme, raised £143 to aid the charity’s work in responding to the needs of children and families affected by life threatening illness or bereavement.
BA CDL Student Representatives Victoria Savage and Sam Boseley presented Yvonne Haines from Daisy’s Dream with the money they had raised. Yvonne then offered a moving insight into the work of Daisy’s Dream in supporting bereaved and distressed children in Berkshire and the surrounding areas.
Jo Elsey, Director of Early Years Initial Teacher Training Programmes at the IoE said:
“We are delighted and proud that our students took the initiative to support such a good cause and one that is close to our hearts. Well done to the students and staff who worked hard to achieve this result.”
