Hundreds of pounds raised for charity
18th November, 2016
Today, the students of Tudor Grange have been busy fundraising for Children in Need by supporting the charity with a non-uniform day and cake sale. However, much to their surprise, the staff shocked them with a role reversal when they appeared in their school uniforms this morning.
Elaine Dart, Learning mentor at Tudor Grange said “We have had such much fun with the students today. They put me on report this morning and they have been nagging me all day to tuck my shirt in and keep my top button done up. It has been a great way to have some fun with the students but more importantly raise money for such a good cause”.
Emily Barker a Sixth Form student at Tudor Grange and has been responsible for leading on the charity events for Children in Need “We have been really pleased with how today went and our cake sale sold out really quickly! We’ve raised hundreds of pounds today, we haven’t finished the final count but it’s the most we’ve ever raised for charity. We all had such a good day today”.
Jodie Bolter, Principal, Tudor Grange Redditch said “It is important that we take part in charitable events and allow the students to come up with ideas and ways to fundraise. Today has been a really super day where the whole community has come together to fund raise. We are delighted with the amount raised and we look forward to continuing our charity work across the year”.
