Group 6 wanted to get involved in the school’s fundraising efforts to buy a defibrillator, which will both benefit the school and the local community. The group worked really well together to discuss different options of how they could raise some money and also involve the local community. After lots of suggestions they decided to hold a raffle and quickly got to work to get it all organised.
The group wrote formal letters and hand delivered them to businesses in the villages around the school: mainly Kirkburton, Skelmanthorpe, Denby Dale and Scissett. They also posted some out to other places around Huddersfield. The children have been overwhelmed by the generous donations and are extremely excited about the upcoming raffle draw.
