The Great North Air Ambulance – We had a visit from the Great North Air Ambulance and their mascot Miles. During a whole school assembly the children watched an animated film about their service. They found out about the work they do and who works on the air ambulance. Some pupils also got to dress up in the uniforms of the Doctor, the Paramedic and the Pilot.

They sang in The Cornmill Shopping Centre in aid of St Teresa’s Hospice and also in Hollies Restaurant at Darlington Memorial Hospital. See our Carol Singing gallery for more pictures.
