Holy Cross Catholic Primary School

Pearly King and Queen

On Thursday 26th May, we invited some special Royal visitors into Holy Cross. Jimmy Jukes MBE and Michelle Thorpe, otherwise known as the Pearly King of Bermondsey, Camberwell and Southwark and the Pearly Queen of Bermondsey and Rotherhithe. They were amazing and the work they do for charity is unbelievable, they work tirelessly to support others. The children asked some really interesting questions and the visit was finished off with, in Jimmy’s words, some ‘fantastic renditions of Cockney songs from yester years’. Thank you, Jimmy and Michelle, for taking time to visit us.
