Ava Smashes her Sponsored Silence

10 year old Ava, a year 6 pupil  has raised a whopping £1200 towards the #Freddiesfight fundraiser. https://uk.gofundme.com/5nf37v-freddies-fight

Kind hearted Ava wanted to do her bit to help and decided to set up a sponsored silence. She notified her family and friends and her class teacher Mrs Turner who were all supportive of her plans to be silent all day at school!.

Ava accomplished a full 12 hours silence from 7am- 7pm on Wednesday 20th March. Ava said, '' At 7pm my mum said  to me that I could start talking again....but I had nothing to say, and usually I do!!

I just really hope that I have helped Freddie, I found this a tough challenge but he faces a tougher one''.

Ava's Mum said ''I am not sure how she managed it as I've never had 2 hours peace let alone 12''

Staff and friends at Thirsk School are so very proud of Ava's kindness, dedication and perseverance
