World Challenge Raffle & Silent Auction Donations

Hello!  We are looking to hold a massive raffle and silent auction at the end of the year to help us raise funds for our expedition to Vietnam in 2019.

We’re looking for as many brilliant raffle prizes to be donated as possible, and all raffle prizes will be greatly appreciated.

If anyone owns, works or knows anyone who works for a business, restaurant, football team, or sports facility (local or nationally) who would be willing to donate a prize for our events, can you please contact Miss Renicks at the school.

We’ve emailed quite a few businesses and football clubs for donations but haven’t had any response yet.

Thank you in advance and for considering our request.

Ben Nevis Challenge – Final Details

Pupils have now been issued with all of the information that they need to safely climb Ben Nevis.

Key Information

  • The bus will be leaving the school at 5.30am sharp. Pupils are asked to be in the school car park no later than 5.15am.
