Year 12 Fundraiser Film Night

As part of the Year 12 PPD programme, we were encouraged to raise money for charity.  We unanimously agreed the chosen charity would be Hope UK and we would call ourselves the Hope UK Fundraising Team.  As a group of four students, we decided to host an Easter themed film night for the Year 7 and 8 students.  After several meetings and lots of preparation, our fundraiser was almost ready to launch.  We arranged a presentation during three Key Curriculum lessons, to raise awareness for our chosen charity and to launch our idea of a Easter themed film night.  The feeling of uncertainty was definitely felt by every member of the group as minimal consent forms were returned.  We did wonder how we would meet the required amount!  However, we were pleasantly surprised when suddenly, very late in the day we had sold over 60 tickets!  As the ticket numbers kept increasing we made a total of three trips to purchase refreshments for the evening.  The Hope UK Fundraising Team made a very healthy profit of £348.35 and the Year 7 and 8 students enjoyed a great evening.
