Buckholme’s military fundraising for forces

Pupils and teachers at Poole’s Buckholme Towers School and Nursery donned their best camouflage and were put through their paces in a Camo Day to raise funds for military charity SSAFA on Friday June 20.

Camo Day is a worldwide non-uniform event raising funds and awareness for the charity which provides practical support and assistance to servicemen and women, veterans, and the families of both.

The pupils listened to a special headmaster’s assembly about the history of SSAFA and the role of the forces in Britain today. Each year group then took part in a boot camp style assault course organised by Blast Sport.
