Members of staff from Northampton High School have raised over £1000 for The Air Ambulance Service. The sum of just over £1,125 was raised over the course of the previous academic year by holding an array of exciting fundraising activities. These events included an Easter Egg raffle, a ‘Pop Up’ clothes shop, book sales, and a 12 days of Christmas themed Scavenger Hunt.
The team supports a local cause each academic year, with previous charities including Children are Butterflies and The Cynthia Spencer Hospice, and enjoy coming together with the help of students to raise as much money as possible for the chosen charity. With the new academic year beginning this week, we were delighted to welcome in Stuart King from The Air Ambulance Service to accept the donation, and to talk to staff about how the contribution will help the service to continue to thrive.
The head of the Staff Charity Committee, Michele Langhorn, said “We are delighted to be able to support a local charity dear to our staff members’ hearts each year, and we’re proud that this is a staple of our academic year. It is important that we all strive to make a difference within our local community, and we are overjoyed to be able to make this donation to an amazing cause”.
We now looks forward to supporting another local charity in the upcoming academic year, with a number of exciting fundraising activities set to get underway shortly.
