Year 8 girls make over £120 for charity with their Design Technology enterprise

Over the autumn term four year eight girls have been manufacturing pen holders and selling them to their teachers in support of St Luke’s Hospice and ‘Solar Schools’. Erin Bolding, Emma Bailey, Niamh Mathews and Cloe Phare worked tirelessly through all their lunches and breaks to produce the high quality pen holders and managed to make £120 for the charities. Mr Keegan who supported the enterprise was astounded by the effort, commitment and enthusiasm shown by the girls. Community Fundraiser for St Luke’s Hospice Wayne Marshall said, “From all of us at St Luke’s Hospice we would like to pass on our thanks to Erin, Emma, Niamh and Cloe for their creative fundraising initiative. The money raised by the girls will go directly to providing specialist end of life care for local people”. The girls are now considering other enterprising activities and have decided supporting an animal charity will be their next focus.
