On Thursday 17th November HCC welcomed Peter Lambourn, from the Devon Air Ambulance Trust, who had come into school to receive a cheque for £107.01. This was raised from our recent ‘Bake Off for Take Off’ competition. The cheque was presented by the winner of the competition, Gaby Moran and the competition organiser Mrs Gliddon. “Thank you for your generous donation. The Air Ambulance is only able to operate because of donations; we receive no government funding. We are dependent on the Air Ambulance in this area, which is now able to fly up until midnight.”
Mrs Gliddon also delivered an assembly to Zeus House about Children in Need, which is another charity the College is supporting this year.
The staff and students have really got on board with the fundraising for Children in Need this year. We have various events happening around the school – from the BBC mannequin challenge for Children in Need to a line of 2 pence pieces running along the inside of the hall – so far measuring an impressive1,400 cm (26 feet!) Many students are doing sponsored events in school – by far the most popular is a sponsored silence, so it may well be a quiet fundraising day on Friday 18th! Students are also being encouraged to ‘Wear their Spots’ on a non- uniform day.
