Students and staff at Felpham Community College have used the new year as an opportunity to have a sort through at home and raise some money for charity at the same time!
All students and staff have been encouraged to bring in donations for St Wilfrid’s Hospice, a charity that has been supporting local people in the community who are living with a life limiting or terminal illness for over 30 years.
The donation drive was organised and co-ordinated by our sixth form Charity Committee, as one of a number of events they organise throughout the academic year.
Thank you to everyone who supported the school with the campaign. On the 3rd February, FCC delivered over 100 bags to the charity which was an amazing achievement! These donations will be sold on in the local St Wilfrid’s Hospice shops.
Jodie Price, year 13 student and member of the Charity Committee, commented:
“The committee visited form rooms from the beginning of this term, encouraging students to speak to their families and bring in donations. It was great to see the bags piling up at school over the last couple of weeks. I was one of the students who took the donations down to St Wilfrid’s last week and it was a good experience to see how our work will help the charity and hopefully raise as much money as possible.”
