Bounce for Comic Relief and The Big Smile
51 students trampoline for 24 hours to raise money for good causes.
In support of Comic Relief 2019 and The Big Smile: Project Gambia, 51 pupils across years 9-11 took part in a fundraising charity event. The challenge: to keep our trampolines bouncing NON-STOP for 24 hours. All of the girls rose to the challenge and persevered throughout the night, even after having a sleepover at school had lost its luster!
Splitting the fundraising money equally between the two charities, the raised funds will go towards supporting vulnerable people and communities in the UK and internationally. In fact, eleven of our pupils, through Maulden Netball Club, will be travelling to The Gambia later this year to deliver training and resources. The girls are looking forward to the experience, and seeing how their efforts can make a difference to people's lives. The total will be reported later.
A huge thank you and well done to each of the pupils, as well as Mrs Birkett, Mr Stevens and Miss Nemeth for their assistance on the night.
