This year, once again, we are taking part in the 5-0 Project to raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice. Students have been working hard to find fun and creative ideas to raise money within school and also within the local community.
Today has seen students bring it cakes for the cake sale. On 15 March we will be showing off our musical talent in a concert for students. On 24 March we will be running a Zumbathon from 9.30 am until 11.30 am in the Sports Hall at and everyone is welcome to come along, burn calories and raise money for a great cause. The cost of entry is £10 paid on the door.
One very brave student is being sponsored to shave his head and students are currently coming up with ways for their teachers to make fools of themselves in order to raise money!
Year 9 student, Noah Dawson, who is taking part in the challenge for the second year, said, "St Catherine’s Hospice is a charity which has touched the lives of many people in our school community and every year we are inspired to do more to help the amazing work they do.”
Last year, St Catherine's cared for more than 2,000 people and their family and friends. Offering practical and emotional support, the hospice's expert care is free to local people, but with less than a third of its running costs coming from the NHS, St Catherine's relies on the generosity and support of the local community. By holding these fundraising events Tanbridge House School is helping make a real difference to terminally ill people in their local community.
