Mendham Primary School

Special Recognition Award for Star Pupil

 Connor has won a special recognition award with south Norfolk council, for his fundraising for Banham zoo back in June.

Inspired by others Connor (6 years old) and his daddy, James have biked to raise money for Banham Zoo and Africa Alive.  Both zoos have been impacted greatly due to the Covid-19 pandemic, they have been rejected by the government for help and with no return to normal visitor numbers likely in the immediate future, even as lockdown is eased, they are in a fight for survival. 

They raised an amazing £7080 for the zoos via their just giving page and South Norfolk have given Connor a glass award to show for is hard work and also given a further £250 towards a charity of his choice.

As a school we would like to say a huge well done to Connor for his hard work and dedication to fundraise and we loved watching you cross the finish line outside the school.
