Year 7A Valentine ‘Sweet Treats’ Raise Money for Women’s Refuge
On Monday 5 February, members of 7A organised a charity stall selling ‘Sweet Treats’ for Valentine’s day in the main foyer at lunch time. Year 7 Student Mabia Boksh gives us her account of the event:
‘We planned to run our stall for three days. However, all the sweet packages were sold out within one hour on the first day! Each package, at 50p each, was going one by one as students queued excitedly to buy a bag for their family and friends. In total, a tremendous £55 was raised which will go towards the Austen House charity, Women’s’ Refuge.’
7A would like say a big thank you to all those students who bought the sweet treats and to all members of 7A who worked hard for several days to make it work. They put in their own money and a lot of effort in preparing the sweet packages, creating the poster and helping out on the stall. The money we made for Women’s’ Refuge will hopefully contribute towards positive impact on the lives of women and children who are seeking refuge.
