Pupils prepare for annual charity week
8:30am Friday 19th October 2012 in News
PUPILS at Droitwich Spa High School are preparing to hold their annual charity drive.
Sixth form students at the Briar Mill school will run a whole week of money raising events from Monday, October 22.
They will spend their lunch and break times at various locations around the school to help make money for good causes.
Pupils in the lower school classes can spend their money taking part in games and attractions such as gunging a teacher, buying cakes and putting golf balls.
Other events, which will run until Friday, October 26, will include leg waxings and playing competitive console games.
Each day at break the school’s concourse is given over to selling food and playing games, while at lunch time the school theatre becomes an arena for the amusement of the crowds with events such as an eat-a-thon and a kiss auction.
Rob Elmes, director of the sixth form, said: “This is always a great week in the school calendar with the whole school entering into the spirit of the event. We usually manage to raise around a thousand pounds for each of our three chosen charities which this year are Acorns Children’s Hospice, the Stonewall charity and our partner school in Ngobit, Kenya.”
The cheques for the money raised will be formally handed over to representatives from the three charities later in the year.
