Image of Pyjama Day for Headway

Kirkham Grammar Junior School pupils dressed up in their pyjamas today to raise money and awareness for the 'Headway' charity. The charity, celebrating its 40th birthday, supported Jessica Thompson's mummy after she sustained significant and life changing injuries in 2006. Despite this, she defied all the odds and completed her degree at Manchester University. The I2 children supported the charity by getting together and having an I2 tea party with cakes provided by the parents, and were joined by Samantha Ashcroft from the charity. The children, dressed in their pyjamas and wearing a hat, sang 'Try Everything' by Shakira to their parents; a song about diversity and keeping going even when times are tough. Our values award was presented to Miss Thompson for being I2's person of inspiration and ‘never giving up’.
