Invicta Breaks Record for Fundraising Again!
It has been another amazingly successful year of fundraising at Invicta Grammar School, with a fantastic end of year grand total of £47,000 raised by the students and staff. This year’s total has been shared with a range of charities both locally and across the world.
In the final assembly of the academic year, cheques were presented to the chosen RAG charities for 2015-16 including; The Anthony Nolan Trust, Holding On Letting Go, Kent Search & Rescue, Army of Angels and Alzheimer’s Society. Many additional cheques were also presented including donations of £1906.02 to Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide, which was Year 11’s chosen charity this year.
Students at Invicta are also very excited as they have continued to raise funds for the Guide Dogs Association. There wasn’t a dry eye in the assembly hall when Kate Hunter and Paul came to the stage with his Guide Dog Pedro and collected their cheque! We also met our new guide dog puppy - Victor.
It was also lovely to see Mrs Slann return to the school again with Mrs Tobin from the Royal Marsden Hospital and accept a cheque for over £1000 in memory of our lovely former student, Amanda Slann, who we lost to leukaemia just over five years ago.
Young Chamber students have worked tirelessly for their chosen charity African Revival. Mr David Leeper, Executive Chair of the Board of Trustees was delighted to accept a cheque for £5750 for the charity from Young Chamber chairperson - William Richards.
We are very proud of the hard work both our students and staff put into fundraising activities throughout the year at Invicta Grammar School and we will endeavour to continue this work with our local, national and international communities for many years to come. We are delighted that we have raised nearly £1000,000 in the last two years. We are very grateful for everyone’s commitment to fundraising.
Thank you to Mrs Rivers and her charity team of students and staff who co-ordinate Invicta’s Charity Fundraising.
