Char­ity begins at home .…..but don’t leave it there!


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!
Eagles rock!
