Young Chamber raises Â£5750 for African Revival
We are delighted that our Young Chamber Group have raised £5750 this year for their chosen charity - African Revival. They held a number of fund raising events including a Burns Night Supper. They also ran a hoodie business, which generated income from hoodies and T shirts sold to students participating in some of the larger school trips.
Well done to the Young Chamber students and especially to Mrs Bennett; the main force behind our Young Chamber and who works tirelessly for the school and for this particular group of students.
David Leeper, Executive Chair of the Board of Trustees of African Revival said “Wow! Congratulations on such a generous response to our work and that of the children and their communities in Africa. £5,750 is an excellent amount and reflects for me an entrepreneurial and compassionate approach. So a huge thank you for your leadership and guidance in this project. As an ex teacher and senior manager at Secondary and Tertiary level and as a current National Leader of Governance (NLG) for the NCTL, and business mentor to sixth formers etc. I can only imagine the focus, implementation of decisions etc. Brilliant!”
David will attend the End of Year Charity Assembly in person to receive our cheque and thank the Young Chamber students personally.
