Selling cakes in Lister Hospital for Cancer Research UK
House Franklin decided to raise money for Cancer Research as we had a member in our form who had suffered with leukaemia. We decided to organise a Teacher’s Karaoke session at a lunch time but this didn’t exactly go to plan… but we learnt from it and decided to plan more efficiently as a team for the rest of the challenge. Our next activity was a Movie Night for Year 7 pupils before the start of their Year 7 Welcome Evening which would keep them occupied before their parents arrived at school. We also organised a ‘Guess the amount of sweets in the jar’ competition across all forms in school, and – as the mum of one form member works at the local hospital – a Cake Sale in the Lister Hospital. We raised a total of around £115, and we’re very proud of our achievement! It was fun and we all bonded as a form, engaging with people we had never met before. We can’t wait to see how the Year 12s do next year.
