Dear Parents

As you're aware we received some terribly sad news on monday, news that we hope that we will never have to encounter ourselves. Alfie was a much loved little boy, by his family, friends and teachers. We simply cannot imagine what his family are having to go through at this time.

As we know, unfortunately as devastating as it is, there isn’t much we can do to help the family through this terrible grief, except make sure they know we are all there for them and that Alfie is in all our hearts and we would like to always remember him. Some of us mums thought that it would be lovely to obtain a colourful bench in memory of Alfie and have it engraved. Apparently Miss Pepper has told the children that they will be planting an apple tree as that was Alfie’s favourite fruit, so the engraved rainbow bench next to it would be a lovely touch.

🌈💕 Any extra money raised after buying Alfie's rainbow bench, Jen would like it to go to Poole hospital children’s ward as Alfie spent so much time there. They would like to buy something specific that the ward need from Alfie 🌈💕🦄

Thank you so much everyone xx
