Sixth Form student leaders raise £438 for Comic Relief

18 March 2019  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

By Emily Treweek, Year 12 student: As a new group of student leaders in Sixth Form, this was the first event we organised. Twenty-four of us all clubbed our ideas together to come up with an exciting day to raise money for Comic Relief. This included running a raffle for a red-themed hamper and a lucky squares game (thank you to Miss Blenkiron and Harrild for manning this, we couldn’t have done it without you! and a bake sale, for which seven of us baked a selection of red themed treats. We also had ‘Just Dance’ on the Wii in the bistro for people to pay to take part in, and we encouraged as many people as possible to wear red. With all these activities put together we raised £438.61 for Comic Relief so thank you to everyone who took part and donated money.

Well done to Ruby Houlden, in Year 7, who won the raffle and Teresa Moss, Pastoral Manager, who won the squares game. Thomas-Edwards Atkinson, in Year 7, was invited to come and help to draw the raffle after he expressed an interest in being involved in charity events.  It was lovely to involve younger members of the school in the fundraising. I’m sure I can speak on behalf of all the student leaders and say that we are all looking forward to running the next charity event, whatever it may be!  Emily Treweek, Year 12
