KIND-HEARTED pupils helped raise hundreds of pounds for a Wearside charity.
St Benet’s Primary School, Fulwell, collected £396 for St Benedict’s Hospice by selling beanie dolls.
The charity, in Newcastle Road, is due to move to its new multimillion-pound facility in Ryhope later this year.
The building will provide 14 in-patient beds, as well as support for as many as 16 patients in a daycare facility.
There will also be a specialist education centre, providing training to staff in a bid to improve care for the terminally ill across the region.
It provides care to seriously -ill patients, helping them “live life to the full in unique surroundings”.
Fund-raiser Sylvia Stoneham, from the charity, visited the school to say thank-you to youngsters including Katrina Priest, Eleanor Nixon, Lydia Riley and Amelia Clarke.
“St Benedict’s Hospice receives great support from primary schools.”
