The hospice’s community fundraiser Jane McGaffney said: “All of the schools have raised an amazing amount of money for the hospice and we are very grateful for their support.”

“The money raised will go towards our fundraising target as we look to increase the amount of children we can look after at one time from four to six.”

In order to fully care for the infants that come into the hospice with life-threatening conditions, Zoë’s Place needs to raise £1.3 million every year.

The schools that took part were: Cardinal Wiseman Catholic Secondary School, Corpus Christi, Good Shepherd, Sacred Heart, St. Gregory’s, St. John Fisher, St. Patrick’s, and SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary Schools.

To celebrate the fundraising, pupils and staff from each of the schools were visited by the hospice mascot, Zoë Bear, and Ethan Maclellan, a two-year-old patient cared for by the hospice.

They also received the opportunity to tour the Council House and have afternoon tea with Councillor Lindsley Harvard, the Lord Mayor of Coventry.
