Compassion in action at saltash.net

Posted by on Oct 15, 2015 in News | No Comments

September saw two major fundraising events take place at saltash.net.

In response to the refugee crisis in Europe, students and staff came together to raise money for the Cornish based charity ShelterBox. In addition to a non-uniform day held on Friday 11th September, Year 7 student, Oliver Crawford, organised a lunchtime fundraiser in the school’s Sports Hall. He and other members of his tutor group (7RB) raised £38 from a series of fun sporting challenges which, when added to the non-uniform day monies, as well as generous contributions from 6th Formers and staff, brought the grand total to £729.54, enough to purchase at least one complete ShelterBox.

In addition to the fundraising for a global concern, staff and students were also mindful of the needs of those closer to home. On Friday 25th September, a cake sale took place during morning break in support of the world’s biggest coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Care. An incredible £168.48 was raised in just 20 minutes.

Thanks are expressed to everyone who helped to support these events.
