Thanks to Notre Dame’s generous and compassionate staff and students, we’ve raised £1,000.87 for BBC Children in Need 2021!
Our fundraising efforts began on Monday November 15, when Head of Biology Sue Lowe and her A-level students sold their home-baked, biology-themed goods at a breaktime cake sale. You can see some of their delicious and beautifully decorated bakes below.
Sue and her students were back in costume on Friday 19 - Children in Need’s Pudsey Day – holding a bucket collection on St Mark’s Avenue and around the college site to relieve staff and students of their loose change.
Our Health and Social Care Department joined in, inviting everyone in the Notre Dame community to come to college on Friday wearing yellow, something spotty, or their pyjamas, and donate £1 to Children in Need.
To mark the occasion, lower sixth student Megan Robson sang Never Enough in Friday’s staff briefing and then during breaktime in a busy upper study area, demonstrating her talent and confidence.
We’re proud of the contribution that our staff and students made to this worthy cause. This has been a record-breaking year for BBC Children in Need: its 41st appeal show, which took place on Friday 19 November, raised £39,389,048 on the night – beating 2020 by £2m.
