Kari’s sweet ideas raise £102.50
Congratulations to Kari Walters, in Year 10, who has raised £102.50 for the Great North Air Ambulance, in honour of Mr Clark. Unable to go ahead with a bake sale, Kari came up with the idea of asking students and staff to guess the number of sweets in two jars and baking and icing a Christmas cake to raffle. She made a second cake for a raffle at Millings Care Home at Bedale where she works.
Kari was delighted to hear that a further £100 has been donated to her fundraising by sixth form entrepreneurs Evey Taylor, Archie Forbes and Kaelan Richards. Having made £200 profit from their enterprise project, they decided to donate £100 to Kari’s project as they were so impressed with her resourceful ways of fundraising.
Kari said: “Mr Clark was one of the most inspiring teachers I have ever met. I have only been at Richmond School for just over one year and it was Mr Clark who showed me around the school. He made me really welcome and he also knew my Dad, as he went to the school. Mr Clark was always there to say good morning to and if I was feeling down one day and I saw him at break or lunch time he would always make me smile.”
