Huge amount rasied for Diabetes UK - Wear Blue Fundraiser Day

On Friday 29th January students and staff came together to raise money for Diabetes UK.


This fundraising day was instigated and led by Year 8 Student Evie Soloman from form EGH. Her Dad has Diabetes and she wanted to raise awareness of the condition. Evie and some of her friends impressed the School Senior Leadership Team with a presentation they made, asking about running the fundraiser. 


Evie has been coordinating a collection of unwanted Christmas gifts to use for a huge raffle, then Evie and some helpers have been selling tickets around the school to students and staff. Evie even made contact with a representative from Diabetes UK who came in to school to give an assembly to students.


On the day everyone paid £1 to come to school wearing blue, as well as buying raffle tickets. This has raised over £1000 


We have been so impressed with Evie’s commitment to running this fundraiser and she certainly has done a lot to raise awareness of this illness. We always welcome input from students about fundraisers or other events held at school, it makes us very proud that our students are such compassionate British Citizens.
