'Onesie’ day to help raise money for Diabetes UK.

Ellie, age 7 and a pupil at the school has a family member with Type 1 Diabetes and along with her mum wanted to do something to raise money and awareness. As well as the ‘onesie’ day which raised £160, Ellie also did a sponsored 7 mile walk in the Peak District which raised £360!

Ellie said, “I was really happy to see everyone at school in ‘onesies’- I was really happy!” It was widely agreed at Porchester Junior School that Head Teacher Graham Cullen, looked the silliest in his Batman ‘onesie’. He said, “It was great to see the school taking part in the fundraising, and for such a good cause. It has helped the staff to talk about Diabetes in a meaningful way to pupils who now have a greater understanding. We are grateful to everyone that played a part to raise the money to help Ellie in her quest.” World Diabetes Day is held on November 14th each year and says its aims are ‘education and prevention’ of the condition.
