The Holgate Academy donates over 250 Easter eggs to the Oncology Unit at the City Hospital

The Holgate Academy has been involved in the Easter Egg collection for the City Hospital Children’s Oncology Unit for four years now and I continue to be amazed at the generosity of the Holgate community. The Holgate Academy collected over 250 Easter eggs for donation this year!
 
These eggs will be collected by Mrs Cooper, a member of the City Hospital children’s oncology unit. Mrs Cooper’s daughter is also student at The Holgate Academy. Thank you to all who contributed and Happy Easter! Mr M Lees, Assistant Principal.
