Sacred Heart College’s chosen Autumn half-term charity, Jospice, has received a cheque for £1,500 following the charitable work of our students.
Jess Smith and Alex Clarke made the presentation to Jospice Community Fundraisers, Linda Byrne and Ian Fennais, during a Year 10 Assembly, held on Tuesday last week.
Mrs Byrne spoke of her delight at the efforts of the College, particularly the Year 10 students, had put into this charity drive. Mrs Byrne said: “The fundraising, which included a reindeer dash, cakes sales and donations, together with a bag pack by Year 12s, has raised enough money to provide three-and-a-half days of care for terminally ill patients at the hospice, or three morphine syringe drivers to keep patients as pain free as possible during difficult days.”
Head of Year 10, Miss Clarke, was proud of the students’ efforts. She said: “Special thanks to all students and Form Tutors for their efforts and I look forward to seeing what ideas are put forward to raise money for the Spring half-term’s charity, Nugent Care.”
