St Wilfrid’s Sixth Form Charity Day
On Friday 17th November, we organised a Charity Day at St Wilfrid’s Sixth Form, raising funds for an Advent Tea Party which will be held for retired members of the local community in December.
Cakes and biscuits were baked, the number of sweets in a jar were guessed, strings were pulled and our Christmas Hedgehog was given the name ‘Hedgy’! Students from across the school were invited to pop up to the Sixth Form area at break time; they came in their 100’s and were serenaded by our talented buskers, singing Christmas songs.
Thank you to all our Sixth Formers who gave up their time to oversee our stalls and to staff who kindly baked for the occasion. We’d also like to give a special mention to Miss Derry who donated lots of small glass keepsakes, which sold really well. We managed to raise a total of £300.70, which will go a long way to ensure that the Advent Tea party is a success.
