Our Very Enterprising Year 9s Raise £2000 for Cancer Research UK

Our Very Enterprising Year 9s Raise £2000 for Cancer Research UK

Year 9 students have been involved in an exciting enterprise challenge, organised by our new Enterprise Advisor, Nickie Gott. Nickie came to talk to year 9 about her own experiences -in life and business- before formally launching a fundraising challenge in partnership with Cancer Research UK. Each STEP group was given a ‘seed fund’ by the charity that they used to source/create their own products to sell at our Christmas fair last week. Every group rose to the challenge, producing amazing and creative products, as well as using their initiative to get involved in other fundraising, including baking, raffles and sponsored somersaults! The event, the first ‘seed challenge’ that Cancer Research UK have funded in a North East school, was an incredible success, raising just over £2000 on top of the original seed fund; thank you to all the students involved, and to the parents who supported and attended the event.
