Not for oneself…

FUNDRAISING FOR CENTREPOINT

During Assemblies this week, pupils have heard from members of the new Year 12 Charities Committee (pictured below) about the school's chosen charity for 2021-22: Centrepoint. Centrepoint provide housing, education and health support to homeless young people aged 16-25 across the UK. Their aim is to give homeless young people a future and to end youth homelessness by 2037. At this time of year, as the nights draw in and temperatures drop, it is hard to contemplate the reality that up to 120,000 young adults in this age range do not have a safe place to call home.

The fundraising campaign will get underway in earnest on 7th December with a Staff vs Student indoor cycling race running in the foyer throughout the day! Charity representatives within each form group will help form the vision for future events and everyone in the community will have an opportunity to get involved. Our late colleague, Kamaljit Gill, championed the importance of charitable service within the school community and we are delighted to continue her legacy by supporting the vital work of Centrepoint this year.
