Harvest Festival 2019

To celebrate Harvest Festival this year, the students and staff at AGGS have been collecting items to donate to South Trafford Food bank. Every form in each year group did a great job and an amazing number of boxes were filled. The year 11 Charity Committee and the form Charity reps carried the boxes of food down to the main hall, where it was arranged on the stage with the help of the Charity Committee.

Harvest Festival is approaching!

Please fill up the cardboard box in your form room with whatever items from the list below that you/your family can spare:

  • Tinned carrots and peas
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Tinned spaghetti
  • Jars of pasta sauce
  • Jars of jam and honey
  • Coffee and hot chocolate
  • UHT fruit juice or cordial
  • Cereals
  • Snacks both savoury and sweet

All items donated will be taken to Trafford South Food Bank

Your cardboard boxes will be collected by the charity committee on the week beginning Monday 7TH OCTOBER

Thank you from the charity committee

I would just like to thank all students and parents for their support for the charity events that have taken place over this past year. As a school, we have managed to raise an incredible amount of money for several charities including Mind, Age UK, Back on Track, Macmillan, Comic Relief, UNICEF and Prevent Breast Cancer.

Some events that we have organised include the first ever AGGS Static Bike Challenge, the AGGS Sportathon, Macmillan and Children in Need case sales, Red Wednesday and a Staff Car Wash.

Prevent Breast Cancer Total

The Charity Committee would like to thank everyone for supporting the recent charity events, which we have run in aid of Prevent Breast Cancer. These events have included the competitive static bike ride in the Main Hall and the Sportathon at the devisdale, as well as ‘Pink Day’ – where students donated a pound to wear a pink accessory.

The Charity Committee also enjoyed raising over £330 at Altincham Football Club last Saturday, collecting money and selling raffle tickets for the raffle, which we drew at half time. A big well done to Poppy C for being the child mascot and leading the two teams out at the beginning of the match.

We have consequently managed to raise a total of £2220 for Prevent Breast Cancer. Thank you again to everyone who has donated to this wonderful charity.
