Helping Hands for Children’s Rights
A great Arts day at Colfox Academy yesterday. Human Rights artists Ricky Romain & Heather Fallowes worked with children from our schools to develop visual art that will form a backdrop to an upcoming Rights concert.
The panels and figures were created by children who wished to celebrate how our schools work to support children across the world who struggle to have all their rights met.
All in Bridport should be proud of how our children and schools raise awareness and funds through engaging with charities and national events such as Red Nose Day and Comic Relief. Money raised support charities at home and abroad that help struggling children and families. Children who lack rights that we should all equally have, such as clean water, nutritious food, good physical and mental health care and protection from harm benefit from these activities.
Our concert on 17th March at Colfox will celebrate global children’s rights and how we work to help the disadvantaged. Schools and Trust choirs will be singing songs and reciting poems that reflect how they feel about the importance of rights.
