Alfred Salter Primary School raises more than a thousand for Bermondsey’s Ruby Longman

Alfred Salter Primary School children and parents raised £1,170 for Ruby Longman before the end of term, the most they have ever raised, for her to buy a computer to help her communicate.

Ruby, ten, suffers from the rare Rett syndrome which has left her unable to walk or talk since she was a baby.

A successful campaign was launched earlier this year to raise £10,000 to buy an eyegaze computer which would help her make choices with her eyes.

Timi Samples, Ruby’s mum, said: “It’s totally amazing and the most the school has ever raised. Ruby’s eyegaze test will be September 8.

“The children received achievements for all they did to raise money for Ruby, and they decided what to do and how to raise money.

“They did pin the bow on Ruby, a baby food challenge, a lucky dip, as well as a raffle and cake sale.”
