Young brothers from Downend honoured for charity fundraising
YOUNG brothers who raised money for a homeless shelter have been honoured at their school.
Ten-year-old Sammy and six-year-old Noah Shellard held a non-uniform day at Bromley Heath Juniors and Bromley Heath Infants to fund raise for The Julian Trust.
It was the second selfless act by the brothers who in December gave up their birthday money for the same cause and bought sleeping bags, umbrellas and socks to help people who had nowhere to go during the festive break.
The boys, who live in Downend, held the non-uniform day on February 8 and raised almost £400.
This week's delicious £5 5 O'CLOCKTAIL is a refreshing Tequila Sunrise. Available everyday from our Bar for only £5 between 5pm & 7pm.
Terms: £5 cocktail applies to the cocktail of the week.

Mum Rish said: “They have an assembly at the junior school celebrating children’s achievements and they were able to hand over what they had raised to Joanne Brown, who is a volunteer with The Julian Trust.
“They were also congratulated by the head teachers for what they had done and for how their idea had meant both schools could work together to help.
“They were called kind, thoughtful young men, I am very proud of them.”
Faye Kitchen and Tina Long, head teachers at Bromley Heath Juniors and Bromley Heath Infants said: “We’re always extremely proud of our students, they consider others and regularly prove that thoughtfulness is at the centre of all they do. It’s brilliant that Sammy and Noah have extended their efforts to our entire school community, involving all their friends in supporting them and learning more about The Julian Trust Night Shelter. What a success.”
The Julian Trust is a night shelter open five nights every week throughout the year where a warm welcome and a hot meal awaits homeless people and rough sleepers.
