Charity Committee’s Efforts Raise £1780 for Children in Need

Fundraising activities organised by KSA’s charity committee helped the Academy to collect £1780 for Children in Need this year.

Committee chairman Alex York and Elisha Taylor organised a whole host of competitions and sales, working across both phases to encourage pupils to join in.

Other Sixth Formers lent their support in more unusual ways - Ellie Warren and Ethan Waterfield volunteered to have sponges thrown at them in the central courtyard, while Jack Marlow and Jatinder Singh gritted their teeth to have their legs waxed.

There were also cake sales, a raffle, the sale of Pudsey paraphernalia and over in primary, a fancy dress competition among other things.

Alex said: "Everyone was really enthusiastic and got in to it all. We had a lot of support - pupils were happy to come and pay for things and get involved. We ran out of wristbands before the end of the week.

"It was a useful thing for me to be involved with because it showed me the planning and organisation that's involved. It's taught me that charity events take a lot of planning but the pay back is amazing."
