Race For School 2014
Over 300 pupils and staff were at the starting line for Connor’s Race For School with their neon balloon to help pay tribute to such an inspirational boy. Each person running/jogging/walking or three legged even released a balloon as they started and took part in a 15 second silence. The money raised it still unsure as sponsors are still being collected but we are hopeful to beat last year’s £3000. The event will hopefully become an annual event and funds raised will be split between Martin House Hospice and Cancer Research.
Auction Event April 2014
Celebrities and sports personalities galore donated items to raise funds for Connor’s wish list. Signed items from Pele & Muhammed Ali,signed Leo Messi boots as well as many signed football shirts were all on offer at the event which was held at Cue Gardens. Over 150 people turned up to the event and it helped raise over £5,000 for our fund.
Prom Fayre Event, March 2014
The school held a Prom Fayre and Silent Auction in March to raise funds for “Connor’s Wish List”. A local store Erika Prom were kind enough to showcase their posh frocks and Greenwoods kindly donated suits for our male members of staff to wear on the catwalk. We also had corsages from Scentiments, make up from Body Shop and hair from Ruby Reds. In another room we held a silent auction seeing items donated by the likes of Joey Essex, Rio Ferdinand and Gary Barlow. The evening was a great success and raised over £2,000 for our Connor fund.
Race For School 2013
The school held it’s first “Race For School” event on the sports field which saw just over 100 pupils and staff run/walk/jog a mile around the running track. The event was started by Connor Lancaster and it bought out the competitive streak in everyone!! A fantastic effort from everybody saw the school raise over £3,000 and the funds raised were split between Cancer Research and our “Connor’s Wish List” fund.
