Pupils from Cliftonville Integrated Primary School recently
enjoyed a visit from Blue Peter’s Helen Skelton and helped
her in her efforts to inspire the public to do something for Comic Relief. Helen, who is known for taking on challenging adventures, wants viewers to undertake their own sponsored challenges to raise money for the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day. She joined the pupils in her red nose zorb at a fancy dress disco. The event was filmed by the BBC and broadcast on national CBBC on 28th February.
Benjamin Murphy, P7 pupil commented “Helen gives encouragement to children to be adventurous as she has completed so many challenges“.
Thomas Savage, P6, said “Helen inspires me to work hard so I can be on TV one day and complete as many adventures as her!”
Brenda McMullen, Principal, said “We are delighted that Helen could join us and we can provide our support for such a worth-while cause. Over recent years, Helen’s numerous adventures have been a source of great interest for our children. It was wonderful that our pupils got the opportunity to meet such an inspirational figure especially after correspondence with a group of P6 pupils about her South Pole trek last year.”
