As you are all aware, Charity Day 2020 has been a bit different than usual. Even though we’ve been confined to the walls of our form rooms, we didn’t let that get in the way of the usual program. The Year 13s have been working hard scripting and filming the pantomime and reflecting on a year that’s been far from normal. We’ve also had a virtual talent show that has demonstrated the various skills of our students ranging from songwriting to creative choreography. It was a difficult task narrowing down the 40 acts to just 15 so thank you to everybody that sent in their entries. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Mr Barry and Mr Carr for being our virtual hosts and to all the students (and geography teachers) that took part this year.
The proceeds from Charity Day are going to Coffee4Craig. They run a drop-in evening and weekend service based in Manchester for the homeless that offers clothes, showers, hot meals and much more. They also provide health advice and access to computers and phones to help people back on their feet. Coffee4Craig are doing an immense amount to help those in need this Christmas and thank you for letting us support them through your charitable donations.
The Charity Committee and I hope that you have a restful break, and we wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
