Once again, the Notre Dame community has made a generous contribution to BBC Children in Need.
This year, staff and students, led by Head of Biology Sue Lowe and Lay Chaplain Andrew Sullivan, arranged a variety of fun activities. These included a two-day bake sale, Pudsey-themed fancy dress, a flash mob in the college upper study area, and a raffle to win a giant teddy bear.
Children in Need took place on November 18, and on the day a team of students headed into the corridors of college to encourage everyone to give up their loose change for a good cause. As if that wasn’t motivation enough to donate, a number of courageous staff volunteered to be part of the ‘teacher in the stocks’ event, allowing students to throw wet sponges at them – for a small fee, of course.
The theme of this year’s Children in Need was everyone doing their part to change young lives, through a Great SPOTacular Appeal. Notre Dame’s fundraising activities were a great success, with £676.50 raised by the end of the week.
Donations can still be made to this excellent cause here.
