Charities Week raises an astounding £9,603.91!

On 14th November a very special week started - Charities Week! This was a huge success resulting in an enjoyable week for all. During the course of the week we had multiple, stimulating events from Cake Sales to the Fun Run along with the amazing talents showcased in ‘Marlborough’s Got Talent’.

We decided to support four charities:

  • Just Like Us - a charity that supports LGBTQ kids who need counselling and support as well as sending volunteers to schools to talk in assemblies;
  • Friends of the Ormerod - a charity that works very closely alongside us in order to help the students at our school get a much-needed new minibus;
  • See Saw - a bereavement charity to help children and families with the death of a relative/friend;
  • Clic Sargent-  a charity to help provide housing and support for children with cancer.

We chose each of our charities carefully and decided these would be most in need of our donations.  

Due to everyone’s great support this year we managed to raise a huge £9603.91. This has smashed all previous years and we are very grateful to all who helped make this happen.
