Saltash.net cheque handoverSaltash.net was delighted to hand a cheque worth over £1000 to St Luke’s Hospice, following fundraising efforts at the end of the 2016-17 school year.

Money was raised from a non-uniform day, but over £700 of the total £1013.27 donated, arose during Curriculum Enrichment Week when a group of 8 students spent the week creating a variety of products. They then used their entrepreneurial skills to sell them at Waitrose at the end of the week. The group received some fantastic publicity and even starred on local radio!

Nina Wearne, Community & Events Fundraising Manager for St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth, visited saltash.net on Halloween and accepted the cheque during assembly before presenting the students with certificates thanking them for their hard work.

Emma Gue, Teacher of Personal Development, who organised the cheque presentation, said, ‘We were thrilled when Nina Wearne was able to come in from St Luke’s Hospice to receive our cheque. This small group of students demonstrated real passion and determination in this fundraising venture. We are so fortunate to have such active young citizens at saltash.net.’
