Teachers enter the jungle for Herts Young Homeless (House Seacole)
The charity House Seacole chose to raise money for was Herts Young Homeless, because members of our team had friends or knew other young people in the area who had been affected by homelessness. The charity is also very local and small, so we believed any funds raised would be extremely beneficial to our local area.
In order to raise money for our chosen charity, we first organised a “ I’m a teacher, get me out of here” event, in which a range of teachers took part in bushtucker trials for the entertainment of younger years in school. Mr Dudley and Mrs Redpath became King and Queen of Bishop’s, after both winning their respective challenges and being voted for by the crowd. We charged money for entry in order to make money for our charity.
Our second fundraising scheme involved contacting the charity for money boxes, t-shirts and wristbands. We then spread awareness in different locations around Hatfield, collecting money and informing members of the public about the aims of our charity.
These two activities were successful and in total we managed to raise £80 for Herts Young Homeless. We hope this will help the charity grow in our local area and make a difference to our community.
