ReadOn Cheque for Cancer Fund for Children




In Assembly on Wednesday morning a cheque for just over £5209 was presented to the Cancer Fund for Children. The money was raised through sponsorship for the ReadOn event. This is a reading challenge for pupils in Years 8 to 10, which encourages the development of reading skills and vocabulary by reading a variety of books. The event was organised in school by Mrs. Murray and ran between 16th and 20th January.

 



Rebecca Oates from the Cancer Fund for Children was present to receive the cheque which was handed over by Mrs. Murray, assisted by highest fundraisers,
Lily McVicker and Lewis McKee.

 

Rebecca spoke about the work of the charity and described the projects that the money would help to fund. She concluded by thanking all who had taken part in ReadOn and congratulated Lilly and Lewis on their fundraising effort.
