Acknowledging military women

Pupils from Christ Church Primary School in Cressage held a charity day in support of family members of those who serve in the Armed Forces. This year’s Red, White and Blue Day, a national fundraising campaign for schools, centred on marking the centenaries of the Women’s Royal Naval Service and the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps.

“We are keen to raise money for service families, but also to raise awareness of the role women play in the Armed Forces,” said acting head Mrs Cansdale. “Mrs Ann Sharpe, a regular volunteer at the school and mother of former Christ Church pupils Melissa and William Sharpe, who are both serving with the RAF, came to talk to the pupils about their service.”
