Zanzibar Curry Night

Fundraising Evening a Huge Success

Next July, twenty one Year 10 and 11 students and three members of staff are travelling to Zanzibar to volunteer in our link school, Kinuni School. This is our second trip as a school and we very much want to continue our support for Kinuni. The students and staff have to fundraise the money for their trip, both individually and in teams. 

On Friday 4th October, seven of the students organised and carried out a ‘Curry, Auction and Quiz’ night in Orford House Social Club. It was an incredibly successful event with many fantastic auction prizes and Stella Creasy our local MP was the auctioneer. 

We want to thank all of our guests for making the night so special as well as Stella Creasy for being our auctioneer. Thank you also to Ron at Orford House for his incredible generosity, to Sham's kitchen for providing a delicious meal and to all of the people who helped on the night and who donated prizes for the raffle.

In total, the students raised £3500 towards their trip.  A fantastic achievement!
