Carol singers kick off Christmas charity fundraising

Carol singers at Handforth Dean

A group of carol singers raised over £200 for Clic Sargent by entertaining Christmas shoppers in Cheshire during a busy month for charity work.

Clic Sargent is our fourth year to sixth form pupils’ current chosen cause, so the £202 made by our singers’ two-hour performance at Handforth Dean retail park will be added to the money they raise for the cancer support cause throughout the school year.

“A great success”

Senior prefect Jennifer Kent loved organising and participating in the event:

It was a great success.

Besides the money raised, it gave a small group of us the opportunity to do some brilliant a capella singing in four-part harmony, along with giving the shoppers something to smile about and enjoy.

Key 103 Mission Christmas

The school is also supporting this winter’s Key 103 Mission Christmas campaign to help deliver gifts to children in Greater Manchester who would otherwise wake up to nothing on Christmas morning.

Junior Christmas tree

Senior school pupils have been donating toys and raising cash for the campaign, while our juniors have been also been putting presents under the tree for Mission Christmas and the Salvation Army and selling toys for Francis House.

Back in November, over £1,000 was raised for Reuben’s Retreat and Macmillan Cancer Support through cake sales, while the Teenage Cancer Trust came to school to collect £1,507 that was raised during the last school year.
