We were delighted to welcome Anne-Marie from Derian House to school today to launch the charity's £50 challenge. Derian House is year 7's designated charity and the £50 challenge encourages businesses and schools to take £50 and turn it into more.

Year 7 has been allocated £100, £20 per form. Each form will receive £20 from the charity with which they can use to create more funds for Derian House. So, for example, they could buy items with the £20 to sell on for a profit or create a pay-to-enter competition with a £20 prize. All the profits, plus the £20, will be donated back to Derian House. You can see what the money funds in the image below. 

A special thank you goes to Ellie A and her family who have already raised a fantastic £200 for the charity! 

We really appreciate your continued support in fundraising for this fabulous charity. Derian House Children's Hospice cares for more than 400 seriously ill babies, children and young people across the North West.
