Cake Sales

23 May 2019 | Posted In Catholic Life of School, Charitable Fundraising

Natasha Abbott and Emily Jennings have raised £400 for the Children’s Cancer Unit crafts area at the LGI. Emily and Natasha organised the fundraising themselves and have had a team of Y9 bakers supporting them. The array of cakes was exceptional and they were available over three break times this week which were well supported by staff and students. Emily will be hand delivering the money raised to the unit.  Congratulations to all who made and bought cakes.

Candlelighters Fund Raising

23 May 2019 | Posted In Catholic Life of School, Charitable Fundraising

The school was delighted to welcome Gina from the Leeds based Candlelighters children’s charity. Mr Brockwell, Headteacher, presented a cheque for £1,025.00 at a Staff Briefing earlier this week.  Mr Brockwell paid a warm tribute to a “fantastic effort” on the part of the school’s knitting team, led by Mrs Nicky Pollard, School Librarian, Mrs Denise Ball, from School Admin and Mrs Jackie Knight, captain of the staff team. Together they knitted hundreds of Easter bunnies, sold over the Easter period topped off by a Grand Easter Raffle.  Well done to all.
