As part of our efforts to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer UK, staff and students alike have been taking part in the charity’s #Challenge24 fundraiser.
We have seen lots of marvellous initiatives from our students, staff and parents who have taken up the challenge, from selling 24 jars of homemade preserves and chutneys, to running 24 minutes every day, from learning phrases in 24 languages to making 24 Covid-protection face masks and more. As you will see on our Social Media channels, our fundraising efforts have soared, with one student making a big contribution to this by smashing her goal and raising over £1,500!
Cordelia in Year 3 has decided to show her support, with her #Challenge24 involving her bouncing her moon ball 24 times for 24 days, trying to beat her best time each day. Raising £1570 at time of writing, Cordelia’s efforts have certainly not gone without notice, and her fundraising page being shared and supported worldwide, with famous garden expert Monty Don showing his full support, donating and sharing Cordelia’s challenge with his 203k followers on Twitter! This has led to an influx of support and donations from across the globe; which is just reward for Cordelia’s fantastic efforts during the month so far.

We know a host of our students are undertaking fantastic activities this month as part of the challenge and we would love to hear more about them! We invite you to share stories with us so we can share them on our website and other media outlets.
