St Gemma's Hospice collect cheque for £1239!

On Thursday 2nd May, Crawshaw welcomed Tara Greatorex, Senior Community Fundraiser for St Gemma's Hospice to collect a cheque for £1239.41, raised in memory of colleague Yvette Millington, who sadly passed away last year.  Yvette spent some time being cared for at St Gemma's Hospice and the staff felt compelled to get together and support their charity in her honour. 

The money has been raised through a number of activities.  These include a charity barbeque which was held last year for the staff, a general collection, a sale of plants including chillis, peppers and tomatoes organised by the Science department and the fines from a staff golf tournament organised by the PE department.  

Mrs Ruse, pictured here with student ambassadors Summer Turner and Brennan Summers, presenting the cheque said "We are delighted to support St Gemma's Hospice and to highlight the fantastic work they do, caring for people when they need it most."  She added "As a school, we are keen to develop an interest in helping others through voluntary work and fundraising, both of which are key to our Humanities ethos."
