Junior and Senior Charity Fayres put the fun in fundraising

Posted on: 27th June 2017

 

Our annual Junior and Senior Charities fairs on Friday 23 June were really good fun for everyone, besides raising an impressive amount of money for our chosen charities.

 

Organised by our Head of Charities, Ms Salmon, the Senior School Charity Fayre on the back grass was a sight to behold, with a hook-a duck stall, a lucky dip, a face glitter stall, Miss Russell was on duty on the sack races and space-hopper races, and of course, there were lots of cake stalls offering beautiful home-made cakes and buns, with all the stalls devised and run by the girls.  In the space of a lunchtime, the Senior Fayre raised £540 for the Mistress Cutler’s Appeal for Cavendish Cancer Care and the Children’s Hospital.

 

The Infant and Junior girls had a great time buying and selling at their annual Charity Afternoon. The Year 4 and 5 girls had put a great deal of effort into organising their stalls, with many more lovely cakes, jewellery, the opportunity to throw wet sponges and apple bobbing, which proved to be very popular, raising an amazing £679.50 for The Sheffield Family Holiday Fund. One of the trustees of the charity, Mrs Rachel Hopkins, visited and was extremely impressed by all the fund-raising events which have been organised during the year.

 

Together with Mr Campbell’s run for Peter’s Commute, Imogen Singh in Year 9 raising money for Valerie’s Fund (Dementia), and Ms Salmon’s sponsored walk for St Gemma’s Hospice Leeds, the  fundraising total for this week has topped £2000 with donations still coming in!  Thank you to everyone involved.
