A Lesson in CharityMalton School
Big-hearted students have thrown their efforts into raising funds for local charities this term.
The students, who all opted to do charity work in their PDA session, held a fundraising event in school to raise money for Martin House Hospice, Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Encephalitis Society.
Under the guidance of Miss Davison, the students split into groups to focus on each of the charities. They were responsible for preparing stalls for a bring and buy sale, bake sale, book sale and sweets in a jar stall. They also had to publicise their events with posters.
One of the students involved, Matty Godrich, year 11, said it had been a great way to develop new skills.
He said: “We have been able to develop our social and personnel skills with these sessions and have gained more of an understanding of local charities and the community.
“The event went superbly well as we raised £90 for our respective charities. We would like to thank everyone who turned up and donated money for our cause. It was great to see students contributing to charities in this way while also being able to develop new skills.”
Students involved in the charity PDA fundraising event are Matty Godrich, Sophie Jackson, Tom Jackson, Grace Vasey, Maughan Vaulter, Caitlin Rutter, Caitlin Stringer, Niamh Jackson, Daniella Preston, Adam Newton, Evie Dade, Kieran Purvis and Alice Thompson.
