Thirty pupils from Focus-Trust – a charitable multi-academy trust established in 2012 and comprised of primary academies across Cheshire, Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire – have recently come together to select the charities that the academies will support with their joint fundraising efforts across the year.

Two Year 5 pupils from each academy were elected to form a Pupil Parliament which meets termly. They met earlier this month to hear pitches from three national charities, Diabetes UK, Shelter and Nepal Village Foundation with a view to choosing one of them to support.
