Children In Need Week 2017

Children in Need Week was a huge success and so much fun. Khadija, Emily and May in Year 13 organised and held a Year 8 Halloween disco and raised an amazing £425.

Children in Need Cake Sale, November 2017Mrs Brennan in Reprographics knitted Pudsey Bear and Pudsey Blush Bear along with four sets of babies, which are on display in Reception, to raffle off. Tickets – a £1 a strip are on sale in Reception until 29th November. The draw will take place at The Christmas Concert during the interval.

Children in Need Cake Sale, November 2017Mrs Clutton, Mr Musgrove and 8-2 baked Pudsey cupcakes and biscuits for the cake sale on Friday 17th November and raised over £200. 7-2 had their own cake sale in the Hall and Sodexo baked a spotty cake and raised a further £56. The Pudsey Bear badges raised £60. At the end of 9-6’s Children in Need themed assembly they held a collection and raised £36!

To date we have raised over £700 and hope to raise even more through the sale of raffle tickets and weekly charity collections.

A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed and helped to raise money for Children in Need.

This year in the Charity Committee we have arranged a series of events to raise money. These included Charity Day, where we had a talent show, a pantomime and lots of stalls packed full with games and food. This whole day was a huge success and we raised an amazing £3,400!

We also held a pancake sale which went down incredibly well and showed itself to be extremely popular as we raised a super £250!

There have been a number of bake sales over the year in which we have always raised a very good sum of money. This year we have raised a staggering total of £7000 of which we presented a cheque worth £1000 to a charity named When You Wish Upon A Star.

When You Wish Upon A Star is a very worthwhile charity who work to grant the wishes of children living with terminal illnesses. They believe that every child deserves to smile and these wishes allow the family to put their child’s illness on hold as they have fun and create precious memories.
