Please help Mrs Cornwell raise money for the British Heart Foundation
Students should have come home with a tube of Smarties.
 
 I have been given 700 tubes of Smarties by local businesses in aid of my fundraising attempts to raise money for the British Heart Foundation; I am running the London Marathon this year for this charity to give back a little.  4 years ago I was diagnosed with a rare heart condition, I am here today only because of the pioneering research  that has been done.  I would love for everyone diagnosed with a heart condition to be able to go on and lead a normal life as possible.  This can only be done through donations.  Money raised also goes towards training people in CPR, buying defibrillator's, microscopes and slides ... the list is endless.
 
The idea of giving Smarties to the students is for them, of course, to eat the Smarties and then refill it with coins.  An added twist is we have made it into an inter house competition and those who take part could be entered into a draw to win a mystery prize if their house wins.  
 
So I would like to thank all the students who have decided to take a tube home and help me raise money for my chosen charity.
