Girls raise almost £400 for Cancer Research and Dementia
Four girls from Blessed William Howard Catholic High School have raised just under £400 for Cancer Research.
The students decided that they wanted to do something different to raise funds for these two causes and so came up with the idea of holding a charity football match.
The girls recruited volunteers from Year 10 and Year 11 until they had enough for two football teams. They then sold around 200 spectators tickets to the rest of the school, as well as setting up a tuck shop to sell sweet treats on the day.
“I am delighted with the efforts of these students; they have shown excellent organisational skills. I am also really pleased with the high level of support they received from other members of the school in taking part in the match, helping out on the day and buying tickets.” commented Mrs Helen Duffield, Leader of Mission and Ethos at the school.
The closely fought match was won (2-1) by Year 11.
