Students from Woodham Academy carried on the school’s tradition of raising money for Children In Need this year.
The academy has been raising money for the charity for over 11 years – and this year, the event was organised by Miss Ellesha Gray, teacher of English.
The whole school actively participated in the event, in terms of sponsored silences, fancy dress, a movie night, and the sale of raffle tickets in order to win a Pudsey cake made by the Academy’s resident chef Linda Vipond. In addition to a raffled cake, other sweet treats were made and sold by students during break and lunch time.
The day was a resounding success, allowing a day of fun to be constructive in terms of raising both money and awareness for the cause of Children in Need.
It started with a guest appearance from Pudsey himself who welcomed the students into school. M
Members of the public even stopped to say hello to Pudsey and donate at the gate. Pudsey was, once again, at the gate at the end of the day to thank students for their participation.
The school raised more than £500 from their fundraising efforts this year.
