Abbey Grange students’ commitment to fundraising as an outward demonstration of their Christian values continues unabated. Last year we raised over £12,500 for over 30 charities and good causes. Students organised numerous bun sales, collections, sponsored events and raffles as well as school wide non-uniform days with a wide focus from local to international charities. This has continued into the new school year with a great effort for Children in Need and the British Legion, MacMillan coffee morning, bun sales galore as well as food collection for a local food bank. January saw a great start with the Race for Life raising over £2000 for cancer charities, closely followed by Comic Relief which saw red noses in abundance. There are many smaller fundraising efforts as students identify a charity close to their heart and organise an event to support it. There is also much fundraising organised by students as part of the Archbishop of York award as well as older students fundraising for the many overseas trips and mission activities they undertake. Through these activities we empower our students to look beyond themselves and give to those less fortunate-as well as have a lot of fun and gain a sense of achievement.
