Emma is in the Wigan Observer again this week. They have been covering Emma’s story for the past few weeks and were at Woodfield School this Wednesday to cover the Ballon Launch.
This event coincided with World Day at the school, one day each school year that the children dress up in national costumes of their chosen country. This year the day was chosen to help publicise Emma’s plight. The children all gathered in the playground and released helium ballons containing information on how to donate to the appeal by text message.
Wigan Observer have been helping the appeal to publicise this day as the day to “text for Emma”. Hopefully this will help to push the appeal much nearer to the total.
And so many thanks goes to all the staff at the Wigan observer newspaper for their help over the past few (and hopefully coming) weeks.
