Go Blue For Lucia

On 19th October, Melina Robinson visited Downside School to receive a cheque for £3,600, raised for Go Blue for Lucia.

Go Blue for Lucia continues to support local charities including the Bristol hospital where Lucia was cared for supplying much needed care parcels for parents who find themselves detained in the hospital. They also fund special treats at Christmas for patients and carers.

The money was raised in two events: in the spring, several Downside skydivers took the plunge and raised £2,600. Thanks must go to Lisa Cullen, Courtney Cullen, Mel Parfitt, Sheldon Gould, Andy Pack, Michelle Targett, Sean Wedmore, John Wedmore and Amy Rotheram.  The second and ever-popular event ‘Railway Rocks’ raised £1,000 at their annual gig. The event was sponsored again by Downside School, the Railway Inn, Feet 1st 4 U, Horrington Milk Hut and Quickprint.
