Fundraising at ACS

Last year the student body took part in a vote to select which charities they would like ACS to support during 2017/18. The winning charities were;

Children’s Hospice South West          

https://www.chsw.org.uk/

Providing hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family across the South West.

Macmillan

https://www.macmillan.org.uk/

The number of people with cancer is growing every day. Macmillan want to reach and improve the lives of every one of those people.

Ditch the Label

https://www.ditchthelabel.org/

Pro equality and anti-bullying. Your world, prejudice free!

 

Throughout the year, the student Fundraising club and Charity committee organise and host fantastic fundraising events that the whole school community can participate in and enjoy.

The first event of this year will be a cake sale in aid of Macmillan. This will take place at break time on Wednesday 27 September. Tutor group ‘cake bingo’ will also take place for years 7 & 8.

 

Grow a Pound

Year 8 students will be taking part in the new ‘Grow a pound’ scheme. This is a fantastic and beneficial activity for both the students and the charity ‘Children’s Hospice Southwest’. Whiteshill Evangelical church have kindly donated £180 so each student can take part. Students will receive a £1 coin, they will then have a term to try and make it grow…

Students can engage with their entrepreneurial spirit to help better the circumstances and lives of those less fortunate than themselves.
