After members of the Club spoke in assemblies at Sandbach High School last year, about Rise Against Hunger and the plan to hold a Meal Pack event, students decided to raise funds themselves.
Each form set a target of £20 and an overall target for the school of £1,000. They baked cakes, ran a popcorn stall and did various other things, as well as direct giving. In the end they raised over £2400 - £1000 of it being raised by one form.
A cheque was handed over to President David Barringer at the school on 3rd November and he presented Certificates of Appreciation. Nicki Oyler, Assistant Head, who had co-ordinated the fundraising said, "Students were really inspired and worked tirelessly to raise as much as possible, far exceeding their targets."
Thank you Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College.
