Tuesday 14th February saw the launch of our ‘Hearts for Hearts’ campaign to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. In the main hall at break and lunchtimes staff and students showed their support for this worthy cause. They bought delicious baked goods, entered cake competitions, tried their luck on the tombola and raffle, guessed the name of the bear and estimated the number of hearts in a jar.

The atmosphere was amazing. One student commented, ‘I can’t believe I have won a prize… I am not usually very lucky!’ The student volunteers literally ‘sold their hearts out’ helping to raise an amazing £659.01 for this worthwhile charity. The Sixth Form also did their part by wearing red and donating a £1.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered to help, donated a cake or bought a raffle ticket.

A special thank you to Andrew McMeiken and his family who organised this event.
