Winter Fair

Winter Fair fundraising event on 12th December 2023

The Winter Fair fundraising event was held on Tuesday, 12th December 2023. Thanks to all the students who organised and supported the event.

As Year 7 Charity Reps, we organised a Winter Fair to raise money for Red Crescent/Red Cross (a charity that supports people in need across the globe). We had a book stall, gifts stall, cake stall, crafts stall, games stall and more. As a 7H Charity Rep I was in charge of the 'Guess how many sweets are in the jar' staff which involved counting out over 1000 sweets! I really enjoyed the Winter Fair and I hope I can get involved in more similar activities.

A lot of preparation went into the Winter Fair from the Year 7 Charity Reps. To begin with we had to get the word out, make posters, sort out jobs, organise donations and plan timings. We also had lots of other smaller tasks including counting over 1000 sweets in a jar. But, in the end, it was all worth it. We managed to raise so much money during the Winter Fair and we can't thank our school community enough for giving us the opportunity to do what we were able to.
