Year 8 Charity Fair 2010

On Friday 23 April, Year 8 held its annual South Wilts Charity Fair. Representatives from 16 charities were invited along to help the girls to understand the work of their charity and to assist in some fund raising over the lunchtime period.

The girls set up their own stalls and displays and raised money with a variety of games and raffles, as well as selling home made cakes, ice cream and other goodies. There was great excitement as staff and girls from the rest of the school wandered around the Fair taking part in the activities. The biggest attraction was a plump retriever puppy brought along by the Woofability charity representative. A total of over ₤620 was raised and the Year 8 students all enjoyed their fund raising experience.

Our thanks go to the charities involved which were: Hope and Homes for Children, Trussell Trust, Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, Woofability, Age Concern, Salisbury Women's Refuge, The Alabaré Christian Care Centres, Salisbury Arts Centre, Naomi House Children's Hospice, Wiltshire Air Ambulance Appeal, Homestart South Wiltshire, SWAN Advocacy Network, Salisbury Samaritans, SCOPE, Harnham Water Meadows Trust and Children's Chance.
