EAGLES house has been working hard to raise money for our two chosen charities for the year — these being Cancer Research UK and The Breast Cancer Care Foundation. Our first venture which was the mammoth KES to Paris running, rowing & cycling event raised a staggering £1203.76. This was then followed up by a very successful cake sale organised wholly by Hollie Tyrell and Chloe Menzies (both in 8JLS) and they raised £48.59. Our most recent effort saw us selling 137 charity wristbands in aid of World Cancer Day and this raised £274. This busy time has meant we have raised so far this year a stupendous total of £1526.35.
On behalf of Eagles house can I thank anyone who sponsored, ate cake, put money in a bucket, wore a bracelet, ran, rowed or cycled… every little did indeed help, and it’s thanks to you that we can split this money between the two charities. We are hoping to get one more event in before the end of the year to pass the magic £2000… so watch this space!
