Sophie Thomas is an ex pupil from Poplar Primary school. When she was just five years old her Daddy and her twin sister Louise were killed in a terrible car crash.
Sophie is now 16 and she has set up a project to raise funds for Winston's Wish - a charity that supports bereaved children, in memory of Louise. Sophie hand paints words or symbols on pebbles and presents them beautifully in little organza bags.
I have commissioned her to produce me a pack I can use in music lessons. My key stage 1 classes love passing them around and using them to mark the pulse. Why not ask Sophie to make some for you? She sells them on ebay - click here They are very reasonably priced £1.20 per pebble and postage only 79p for a bundle!
Perfect present for teachers!
Sophie writes an incredibly moving and honest blog about her life called "The Pebble Garden Project" Please share with anyone you know who may be coping with childhood bereavement.
