CHARITY DISCO IS A HUGE HIT WITH YEAR 7s AND RAISES £370 FOR YORKSHIRE CANCER RESEARCH
A charity disco, in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research, was organised by the students in 12 Abbey for their Ten Pound Challenge. Millie Holden came up with the idea to host the disco in Clarke Hall for our Year 7 students. It was a fantastic team effort with Alana Teasdale designing the poster and tickets, Lola Reilly taking photographs, tickets sold by Megan Hall, Katie Wade, Rowannae Holmes, Millie Holden, Zara Brown, Charlotte Watson, Freya Ball, Lydia Cooper and Ellie Spencer. In addition, food and drinks were provided by the whole tutor group and sold by Millie Holden, Zara Brown, Rowanne Holmes, Freya Ball. Katie Wade and Megan Hall were checking tickets at the door.
The students were most grateful to Ms Richardson, Miss Byrom, Ms Johnson, Miss Dunwoodie and Mrs Farquhar who helped to chaperone on the evening. And of course, special thanks to Miss Abbey the resident DJ for the evening, who kept the students dancing with her very popular music choices.
Megan Hall said: “The whole of our tutor group had so much fun organising the event and raising money for such an important charity, not to mention how much fun the Year 7s had!
Lola Reilly added: “The challenge was really an amazing opportunity for us to have some fun together as a tutor group in organising such a great event for the Year 7s. I’m so glad it proved so successful and most importantly raised a large amount of money for our chosen charity.”
One hundred students attended the disco, which raised £370 for Yorkshire Cancer Research.
Miss Abbey concluded: “I am so proud of the students, not only have they raised a superb amount for Yorkshire Cancer Research but they brought a huge amount of joy to our younger students by giving them the opportunity to attend their first disco as Year 7s. Everyone had a wonderful time. Well done everyone.”
