On Friday 23 October, the Sixth Form held a 1970s-themed dress-up day to fundraise for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), a local charity that provides care and support for children with life-threatening conditions and their families across Cambridge, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.
As a Student President Team, we felt it was particularly important to find creative ways within COVID-19 guidelines to continue to actively support charities, upholding our commitment to supporting the wider community that we as a Student body and Sixth Form so firmly believe in. It was wonderful to see the way in which the student community enthusiastically participated in this event, temporarily transporting the Sixth Form back to the era of flares, tie-dye shirts and platform shoes. In a single day, we managed to raise an amazing £127.13! Needless to say, the money raised is going to a wonderful cause, in particular need of our support at this time: the maintenance of EACH’s three hospices along with the care and support they provide to children and families in our area. On behalf of the Team, I would like to thank all students for getting involved and giving so generously, and look forward to more opportunities for collaboration on fundraising initiatives in the coming year!
