Pankhurst, Lowry and Turing Fundraising

In June, Wellacre’s staff and students worked together in their Houses to host a dedicated House Charity Day.

Lowry, Turing and Pankhurst Houses selected their own charities to support and each form organised various events to raise as much funds as possible.

Lowry students chose Team Seas, Pankhurst selected Young Minds and Turing decided on the Teenage Cancer Trust.  

Students had great fun brainstorming ideas in their forms.  This culminated in events ranging from Soak the Teacher, a Bushtucker Trial, an Ice Bucket Challenge, a retro gaming competition, and sponsored silences.

There were also delicious bake sales and raffles with the Wellacre community collecting amazing donations for prizes including a Marcus Rashford signed shirt and custom-designed trainers.

Mrs Sharrock, Principal, said:

“I am so proud of the students for their charitable work.  They show a great awareness and  understanding of the needs of others.”
