Support Victims of Hinckley Road

We are students from English Martyrs Catholic School. In Leicester and on sunday 25th February, there was an explosion on Hinckley Road. Two of the children involved in this incident are students at our school, and many of us were close with them. We hope to raise money so that we can provide funds for any financial support they need. Any donations will be greatly appreciated, and we will be doing our best to do fundraising within our school to help too. We plan to deliver the funds directly to the father of the family who lived in the flat above.

Sandra Loakes, The English Marytrs Business manager will withdraw the money into the school's charity account, then Mr Carney, our Head Teacher will give the money to Jose Ragoobeer as soon as possible.
