Year 13 'Grow a Fiver' Challenge

Grow a Fiver


On Friday 9th November, we celebrated Year 13s’ impressive fundraising skills by announcing this year’s inter-tutor group ‘Grow a Fiver’ charity competition winners.

Each year in the summer term, we challenge each tutor group to transform £5 into a much larger sum of money; they can then donate the money to a charity of their choice. This year, 13AD came up with the highly entrepreneurial idea of using the surplus chocolate pieces from the local chocolate factory, repackaging them neatly and selling them on. They raised £122.25.

As the highest total raised, the group netted the cumulative total across the whole year group. We were therefore able to donate a hefty £503.53 to their chosen charity, the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. It was our pleasure to welcome Roy Hardy from the organisation to receive the cheque and to congratulate 13AD and the rest of the year group for using their initiative and putting their efforts to such good use.
