Raising and Giving Week

By Lewis Ormston – Year 13

After an extraordinary week of fundraising last week, Kingsmeadow Raising and Giving Week aimed to raise money for the local charity, FACT Cancer Support. With many events happening last week, ranging from Guess How Many Sweets in the Jar, to the Car Wash and Bake Sale, it was a jam-packed week of charity events!

Thank you to everyone who has donated and enabled Kingsmeadow Raising and Giving Week to raise £1,114.87 for FACT Cancer Support.

With five days of fundraising before school, at break time, lunchtime, and after school, we’ve managed to go beyond the £1,000 mark! Thank you to everyone who has donated and made our total even bigger!

This money will make a difference to everyone at FACT Cancer Support and enable them to support even more people and continue the amazing work that they carry out in our local community. To find out even more about FACT, visit their website by clicking here.

All year 13’s who have ran each event would like to thank everyone who has participated in RAG Week events and made last week even more of a success to raise huge amounts of money for an amazing local charity! Continue reading

‘REAL’ Support for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation

As the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation is set to celebrate 10 years of fundraising this weekend, we were delighted to receive receipt for the money our Year 7 REAL showcase event raised for this fantastic charity. The foundation was set up by Sir Bobby himself, who was diagnosed with cancer 5 times and to date, the charity has raised twelve million pounds for vital research into the disease which affects around 2.5 million people in the UK. With the generosity of local business Ringtons Tea Merchants, who donated hampers for us to raffle, we proudly managed to raise £200 for this very worthwhile cause.
