Year 10 Christmas Charity 5 a side Football Tournament & Cake Sale

At this time of year WELLACRE encourages our students to think about and reflect upon the act of giving. In response our Year 10 students chose to support Cancer Research UK for their Christmas Charity by organising a lunchtime 5 a side football tournament and cake sale.

Fundraising ideas were previously discussed in form groups and their chosen events were then promoted at DEAR, break and lunchtimes throughout our school.

The football tournament was both very well attended and supported, with form groups deciding on their best teams, challenging each other and aspiring to be the most successful on the day. The eventual winners were Adam Youd FC and the tournament raised £100.

The cake sale took place at break time and proved extremely popular, with cakes selling out far faster than anticipated! The total raised from the sale was £50

Our students have used this project to not only raise money but to also develop their team working skills. Building a community with a common aim has provided our students the opportunity to work together towards a common and compassionate goal.
