The time has come to get your thinking caps on about how you can help us raise even more than last year from Charities Week. Whether you want to rival the Great British Bake Off with your cake stall, make something creative to sell or even have an idea for a sports competition we want all your ideas now!
If you have any ideas that you think could help us raise money then come and collect an entry form from Miss Khan in Maths (F10) or Mrs Hamilton in Business Education (D14). These forms then need to be back with us by Thursday 10 October so that we can turn your ideas into reality and raise lots of money for charity!
