Hunter Speakman, a pupil from Bury Grammar School has been selling Gold Hearts during his break time to raise funds for Variety.

He was so amazed with the work the Charity does that he invited Variety Northwest to speak about the Charity to his school.

On 21st April, Lyn Staunton, Variety Northwest Development Director attended the school assembly and showed the pupils a video clip showcasing all the wonderful work Variety does and conducted a Q&A session with the pupils.

Lyn said:

” To see Hunter stand up in front of all his peers at the school at such a young age and asking them to support Variety, was so moving and inspirational. Its something I will not forget.”

Mrs. Dowd, head teacher and the staff were delighted to support the school assembly dedicated to Variety, the Children’s Charity.
