Thistle House Day takes place today, December 1; this is an annual fundraising event to raise money for the House charities. This year Thistle House is supporting Helen and Douglas House and The Animal Sanctuary in Dorney. Helen and Douglas House is a charity which Thistle House has supported for many years; it provides hospice and palliative care to children and young adults in Oxfordshire. The Animal Sanctuary, however, has been selected by this year’s House Captain. Here they rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals but if this is not possible then they have a safe and loving home with them for life.
Both Junior House and Upper School were sea of purple, blue and white as the girls paid £1 to wear the Thistle House colours. At Upper School, a very popular cake sale took place at morning break, with nail painting and guess the name of the dog taking place at lunch time.
