Over £1,000 was raised during the second half of the Autumn Term for a range of charitable efforts thanks to generous and compassionate students and staff at saltash.net community school.
Year 12 students, Amber Pritchard and Shannon Reed, organised a sponsored row in the 6th Form Day Room, enlisting the help of their peers to row continuously from 7.00am to 7.00pm. Cheered on by the school community, they raised a superb £419.19 for Cancer Research.
Students lower down the school also took the initiative to organise fundraising activities, including year 9 student, Jack Phelan, who took responsibility for the Christmas raffle, raising £123.83 for his effort to reach £3,000 needed to install an IPAD SP1 Defibrillator outside the Fire Station in Saltash.
Year 10 student, Megan Kelly, along with year 12 student, Gabriella Adams, worked hard to organise a lunchtime Christmas talent show and this generated the grand total of £66.31 to go towards the Text Santa national campaign which supports a number of different charities.
In addition to these individual fundraisers, years 7-11 took part in a non-uniform day in December to help raise money for the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust and the Kambeng Trust which supports the education of children in West Africa. This day raised an additional £500, bringing the total for the second half of the Autumn Term to £1,109.33. The overall amount raised for charity during the whole of the Autumn term was £3,484.27, an incredible outcome!
