Pupils launch book to raise funds for hospice

Pupils and staff at Eden Boys’ School, Preston have created a book filled with hope to raise funds for East Lancashire Hospice.

The book, which is entitled ‘Inspire’, contains a collection of thoughtful poems and artwork which has been created exclusively by pupils and staff and made especially for the project.

 The Inspire project aimed to help pupils, parents and staff by encouraging them to think about the positive changes they could bring about during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nafisa Patel, Principal at Eden Boys’ School, Preston, thanked pupils, parents and staff for their hard work and for supporting the project.

She said: “The Inspire project has helped to provide a positive focus during what has been a challenging time for many of our families.

“By focusing on the things we can improve, we are teaching pupils how a positive outlook can help them to remain resilient during these difficult times.

“We are immensely proud of our book and I am personally very grateful to all of our pupils, parents and staff who have supported and contributed to the project.

“We hope the book will raise some much-needed funds for East Lancashire Hospice during a time when many charities are struggling to raise funds using traditional methods.”
