Kari’s sweet ideas to raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance in honour of Mr Clark

Kari Walters, in Year 10, is a keen cook and originally planned to have a bake sale at school to raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance, in honour of Mr Clark.  Due to Covid restrictions this isn’t possible, so resourceful Kari has come up with some other fundraising ideas.  Students and staff are invited to guess the number of sweets in two jars – at just 50p per go, Kari hopes that this will be popular with everyone.  Kari is also raffling a Christmas cake which she is baking and icing herself. Tickets are £1 per strip.  Students and staff can choose their numbers and buy their tickets at student services.

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

“I thought to myself, I would really like to do a little bit of fundraising in memory off this great man who had a massive impact on my time at Richmond School and I could not thank him enough for the support he give me. I was very disappointed when I found out that it wouldn’t be possible to have a traditional bake sale in school but I fully understand the reasons why. I still wanted to do something and came up with the idea of guessing the number of sweets in the jar, which I thought many of the students would like to have a go at.  I really love cooking, so having the opportunity to make and ice a Christmas cake and raffle it means I am still able to do some baking.

“I am also doing a Christmas cake raffle within my work place at the Millings Care Home at Bedale to raise just that little bit more for the Great North Air Ambulance.”
