During the last academic year Nina Zebedee-Howard, Grace Egerton, Issabella Chapman, and Sophie Wilkinson participated in an entrepreneur fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support. They chose this charity as it is very close to their hearts, as some of our close family members have been affected by cancer. Local business in Greater Manchester contributed to our endeavour by donating confectionery goods for the challenge. They came up with the name Sweet Tooth because it fitted brilliantly with what they were selling.
During the planning weeks there was a lot of hard work, dedication, and time spent developing their project. They sold our products over a five day period. This started on the 18th June, ending on the 22nd June which was Sports Say. They sold their goods to the whole school including the Prep pupils. They offered their products to pupils and parents at breaks, lunches, and after school. Pupils made a massive contribution towards our fundraiser. Parents also made a contribution by buying raffle tickets for a chance to win a sweet hamper. Teas and coffees were also sold on Sports Day to help.
Overall they raised £700 and are extremely thankful to the pupils, parents, and teachers for all of their support and contributions. A special thanks to Rose Tipton for visiting our school on behalf of Macmillan, to be presented with the cheque.
