Ukraine and Afghanistan Humanitarian Appeal: £1438.55 raised!
In response to our school community wishing to support the global refugee crisis we held a dress down day on Friday the 11th March. Donations given on the day were used to support the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) who bring together 15 leading UK aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently at times of crisis overseas. The DEC are currently supporting the Ukraine humanitarian appeal and the Afghanistan crisis appeal which are currently highest in the priority for any funding.
The idea was brought to Interact by an S4 pupil who felt that something should be done to help those affected by the crisis. The school backed her request and the Interact club helped to support the event and make as much as possible. We were overwhelmed to raise £1438.55 which is the most we have ever raised in a dress down day.
If you have any questions about the DEC please have a look at their website below:
The Interact club meet twice a week and if you want to get involved please see Mrs Rees-Jenkins or Miss Lovelock.
