Go­ing wild for sanc­tu­ary

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

They might only be six and seven, but three young cham­pi­ons of the nat­u­ral world en­cour­aged their whole school to go wild for char­ity.

Isla Hardwick, Scar­lett Adams and Talia Simp­son, who are all in Year 2 at Smar­den Pri­mary, fol­lowed up a suc­cess­ful cake sale by per­suad­ing their fel­low pupils to wear an­i­mal cos­tumes on Thurs­day last week.

Tigers, go­ril­las and foxes were just some of the crea­tures that trot­ted into the school to raise more than £250 for the nearby Wildlife Her­itage Foun­da­tion.

The an­i­mal sanc­tu­ary, in Head­corn Road, helps pre­serve cats both large and small as part of the Euro­pean En­dan­gered Species Breed­ing Pro­gramme. Be­low, some of the chil­dren from Owls class dressed up as an­i­mals in aid of the Wildlife Her­itage Foun­da­tion
